The tool lets users select one or two 3D sensors to instantly analyze and compare minimum range, maximum range, horizontal field of view, vertical field of view, and diagonal field of view. You can also click and drag for different viewpoints.
SICK said the camera is designed for high-end inspection and precise localization duties when mounted on a robot arm.
American Robotics announce a partnership that fulfills the FAA requirements for the safe operation of drones beyond the line of sight.
The 3D time-of-flight depth sensor for AMRs and cobots offers a 360° x 60° field of view at 30fps.
Velodyne’s solid-state Velabit sensor now has approximately three times more points per second than the previous model.
Vention’s manufacturing automation platform accelerates the design and deployment of modular applications for robot guidance systems with SICK.
ACEINNA announces the general availability of the OpenIMU335RI, a rugged inertial measurement unit with CAN and RS232 interfaces. The device includes three independent 3-Axis accelerometers and 3-Axis Gyros
Creating ‘commercial-grade’ software that is robust enough to be deployed in thousands of robots in the real world, at prices that make that scale achievable, is the next challenge for the industry.
NASA is eager to share the technical details of its accomplishments, unlike the typical commercial robotics venture trying to outpace its competitors.
Over the past decade, the perception industry has exploded with new companies, new technologies, and the deployments of millions of sensors in industries ranging from the traditional (automobiles) to the cutting-edge (space travel). While incumbents have locked up majority market shares in some segments, other segments have seen the rise of dominant new players that…
Hitachi acquired Kyoto Robotics, a Japan-based developer of 3D vision systems, control systems and more recently picking robots for the logistics industry. Hitachi acquired 96% of all issued shares of Kyoto Robotics and made it a subsidiary. Terms of the acquisition weren’t disclosed. Hitachi said the acquisition will enable it to provide one-stop shop of…
The interaction of the eviXscan 3D scanner with UR’s cobots is possible due to a extension (URCap) to the cobot software. It enables the cobot to communicate with the eviXscan 3D Suite scanner software.
MIT researchers have developed a robot that uses radio waves, which can pass through walls, to sense occluded objects. The robot, called RF-Grasp, combines this powerful sensing with more traditional computer vision to locate and grasp items that might otherwise be blocked from view. The advance could one day streamline e-commerce fulfillment in warehouses or…
Safety system monitors two protective fields simultaneously around a cobot, making it possible to dynamically reduce or stop the robot’s movement only when a person is too close to the working area.
This is the second LiDAR startup Aurora acquired in less than two years. In May 2019, Aurora acquired Montana-based Blackmore.
Veo Robotics, a Waltham, Mass-based company turning traditional industrial robotic arms into collaborative machines, named Calvary Robotics as its initial certified systems integrator partner. Founded in 1994, Calvary Robotics is a leading developer of custom turnkey automation solutions, robotic platforms and material handling systems. Veo’s flagship product, FreeMove, uses advanced computer vision and 3D sensing…
Autonomous navigation capabilities of mobile robots are highly dependent on the sensor stack. And with the use of mobile robots expanding across multiple industries, improved perception and navigation enables safer operation. DreamVu, a Philadelphia startup founded in 2017, announced today its PAL and PAL Mini 3D vision systems are now available. Both PAL and PAL…
Cruise co-founder, president and CTO Kyle Vogt weighed in on the LiDAR SPAC trend, saying the industry will eventually consolidate.
Stryker said OrthoSensor’s Verasense intraoperative sensor technology will further boost Mako surgical robots, enhancing workflow through one complete data-driven feedback mechanism.
Both companies make cameras, sensor systems and unmanned systems, among other products, but there is not much overlap.
A SPAC offers startups quicker access to capital and greater liquidity, which can help drive innovation in advance of greater adoption.
Canadian machine vision firm Immervision has been working on providing low-light capabilities to aerial drones and a wider field of view for autonomous vehicle lidar.
