temi (www.robotemi.com), developer of advanced personal robot temi has selected Newsight's NSI3000 line sensor for the robots 3D visual system. The NSI3000 chip is embedded in the robots LiDAR system, which controls the essential functioning of the personal robots navigation.


temi is a personal robot that aims to become an essential addition to every home. Featuring a 10.1 touchscreen atop a 3.2-foot-tall minimalist frame, temi traverses the home without colliding with furniture, providing a host of useful, connected capabilities on demand.

Intelligent automaton offers the experience of handsfree video calls, control of all smart home devices, enjoyment of music and videos from any room in the home, a vastly superior AI assistant. temi is an open platform for apps that interact with people, including interactive games, educational apps for fun learning, medical apps, etc. Furthermore, when away from home, a smartphone connection to temi facilitates the owners continued physical presence in the home: to talk to family members, or to check that everything is OK.

Yossi Wolf, founder and CEO of temi: "While considering the requirements for a state-of-the-art vision system for our robot, we evaluated several solutions and chose Newsights chip, which demonstrated outstanding performance and the best ROI. Our Robot's navigation system is highly advanced, and we are very pleased with market demand for our products, as customers such as Google begin to acquire our robots".

"We are very pleased with the collaboration with temi" adds Eli Assoolin, CEO and co-founder of Newsight Imaging: "Once again our superior technology proved to be the best fit, this time for a personal robot application. We are seeing strong, growing demand for accurate and affordable 3D systems, and are currently selling the chip to leading vendors of LiDARs, robots, Industry 4.0, and automotive, as we develop our next generation area sensor for mobile, surveillance and automotive applications. temi is an exciting use-case of our chip, and we see the vast potential of a Newsight chip included in a robot we believe will be in every home, and as a firm indication that we are on the right track".

About temi

The temi Company was founded by CEO Yossi Wolf in 2016. Having established robotics company Roboteam Defense seven years earlier with partner Elad Levy, Yossi decided to change direction to the consumer market and create temi, the personal robot. Today temi is a global company with offices in Shenzhen China (production), New York (Marketing&Sales), Tel Aviv (R&D), and Singapore.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
