Kinema Systems | Winner in Autonomous Systems Category
Kinema Systems is a Silicon Valley startup that has developed a system of deep learning 3D vision for industrial robots, allowing them to more effectively perform logistical problems, such as picking up and de-palletizing boxes. The team includes experts in robotics, automation and perception, with experience implementing and deploying innovative solutions to complex industrial problems.
The company’s initial product, Kinema Pick, is designed for de-palletization of multi-SKU, single SKU and random pallets. It can be integrated with any robot and vacuum gripper. Kinema Pick is easy to configure using a browser-based GUI. It integrates the KS1000, a high-resolution 3D/2D sensor with advanced motion planning and requires minimal training for any type of box or workcell, minimizing integration time.
The company says its solution is self-calibrating and deployable on standard or industrial PCs. It uses GPU-accelerated deep learning and 3D Vision to locate boxes, as well as perform label detection and alignment.
