Robotics Summit and Expo

05 - 06 June 2019

Location: Seaport World Trade Center, Boston, MA, USA

At Pickit, we give eyes to robots to help them localise objects in front of them. But we believe that the future in robotics vision extends to understanding environment – when a robot uses vision to know where she is, maps an area, localises herself. Want to learn more about VSLAM (vision-based simultanious localisation and mapping), ego motion, visual positioning? Visit Systems, Design and Development Track at Robotics Summit in Boston, where our VP of Innovation Dominick Vanthienen will be speaking about the topic:

"VSLAM is ready: Performant and Affordable Visual Positioning for Robots"

Vision-based positioning, including techniques such as vision-based simultaneous localization and mapping (VSLAM), have matured and are increasingly used in commercial applications such as AR/VR headsets, phones and consumer robots. Toolboxes such as Google’s ARCore/ARKit and Google VPS have paved the way for a number of solution providers in the market, including those providing support for visual positioning for commercial robotics. In this presentation, Dominick Vanthienen, will provide an overview of existing commercial applications utilizing vision-based positioning in the market today. Furthermore, he will outline the substantial benefits of vision-based positioning, including the synergies with other vision technologies to create robot awareness, and its ability to scale. Lastly, he will provide an overview of what is possible today and describe what challenges remain.
