PerceptIn Showcases Robotics Vision System at CB Insights A-ha! Demo Day

PerceptIn Selected to Present at CB Insights First-Ever Demo Day as Part of the AI Category

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PerceptIn, a leading full-stack visual intelligence company, today presented the first robotics vision system to combine both hardware and software for real-time tracking, mapping, and path planning for autonomous robots at the CB Insights A-ha! Demo Day.

While more than 2,000 companies applied for the opportunity to pitch at Demo Day, PerceptIn was one of 40 companies chosen to present at the A-ha! Conference. CB Insights selected PerceptIn as part of an elite group of startups driving progress in artificial intelligence, fintech, health and bleeding-edge technologies to present in front of investors without giving up any equity.

"We are honored to participate alongside so many other innovative companies," said Zhe Zhang, Co-Founder and CEO of PerceptIn. "For robots to be truly autonomous, they need vision-based perception, similar to the way humans use their senses to relate to the world around them to make decisions," continued Zhang. "This ability to improve a machines understanding of its environment is the basis for improving its reactions and enabling new forms of action. The industry doesnt move forward without it."

Presenting companies were selected based on two rounds of interviews and questions posed by CB Insights researchers about the companys market traction, product availability, originality, founder expertise, revenue, and funding.

Unlike others, PerceptIn solutions are scalable - they can be integrated into almost any device for a broad range of functions, from household vacuum robots to autonomous vehicles that navigate roadways and factory floors. Once embedded into robotic systems, PerceptIn solutions create high performance functionality with limited computing power that manufacturers can deploy on a large scale. Hardware and software are tightly integrated, removing the need to piece together disparate hardware and software offerings for robotic perception, saving manufacturers thousands of engineering hours and millions of dollars.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
