ATI said the Mini43LP is well suited for small delicate operations such as the assembly of electronic components or optics, product research and testing applications, laboratory automation, robotic surgery, and more.
Ouster is buying Sense Photonics to create a new division focused on low-cost, solid state automotive sensors.
In the end-of-life notice, Intel reiterated it will “continue to sell the stereo products to current distribution customers.”
MOV.ai and Velodyne deliver a complete navigation package for ROS-based AMR solutions.
“We’re winding down our commercial LiDAR business as we maintain our focus on developing and deploying our Waymo Driver across our Waymo One (ride-hailing) and Waymo Via (delivery) units.”
Intel now says the RealSense business unit is winding down and the LiDAR, Facial Authentication and Tracking product lines will reach end of life this month. However, most of the stereo products will “continue.”
RealSense has been a go-to for industry and academia for low-cost, high-quality depth sensing.
“We are winding down our RealSense business and transitioning our computer vision talent, technology and products to focus on advancing innovative technologies that better support our core businesses and IDM 2.0 strategy.”
Ouster shipped more than 1,460 sensors in the second quarter, which is an 342% increase year over year and a 49% increase over Q1.
The Puck is a compact LiDAR sensor that provides a 360-degree view with real-time 3D data and a 100 meter range.
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.

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.
