New sensors developed by Israeli company Inuitive allow robots to see the world like a human.
It says its technology provides enhanced depth, allowing them to differentiate between humans and objects using AI-based obstacle detection and object recognition.
“Our new all-in-one sensor modules expand our portfolio targeting the growing market of autonomous mobile robots,” said Shlomo Gadot, the company’s CEO and Co-Founder.
“Together with our category-leading Vision-on-Chip processor, we now enable robotic devices to look at the world with human-like visual understanding.”
The company has developed two sensors, which can be easily integrated into both robots and drones systems.
It says the M4.5S sensor and processor module has the widest field of vision in the industry, the shortest minimum sensing range at 9 cm (3.5 inches), and can operate at a wide range of temperatures of up to 50 degrees Celsius (122 degrees Fahrenheit).
The other sensor module, the M4.3WN, can build local mapping using visual navigation in places where GPS is not the best.
Robots with this sensor can navigate freely, plan paths, and avoid obstacles – which are the biggest challenges for automated guided vehicles that are used in warehouses and manufacturing facilities.
“Inuitive is fully committed to continuously developing the best performing products for our customers and becoming their supplier of choice,” said Gadot.
Inuitive was founded in 2012, and is based in Ra’anana, central Israel. It has offices abroad in California, USA, and in Guangdong, China.
