RGo Robotics Enables Breakthrough AI-Powered Perception on Intel Architecture

RGo’s Perception Engine offers robotic manufacturers a best-in-class, AI-powered perception solution.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - (March 11, 2024) - RGo Robotics (RGo), a pioneer in artificial perception for mobile machines, allowing them to see, understand and adapt to the real world, in collaboration with Intel, announced today that its Perception Engine™ is optimized to run on Intel Core Processors.

RGo's Perception Engine offers robotic manufacturers a best-in-class, AI-powered perception solution. The product demonstrates breakthrough results of localization and obstacle detection modules, allowing robotic solution providers to achieve the highest level of robustness, reliability, speed and accuracy. This enables them to simplify and shorten new site installations, to operate effectively in dynamic and very repetitive environments and to improve their spatial understanding, operating in real time with limited latency.

The RGo solution optimized for Intel architecture uses different components and embedded hardware accelerators within Intel architecture. Key benefits include:

• Minimized system load and power consumption - the software assigns each task to the most suitable hardware module, CPU, GPU and other accelerators, minimizing the system load and power consumption of the overall solution.
• Sophisticated visual data processing - the efficient use of resources allows more visual data to be processed, more sophisticated and complex algorithms to run on Perception Engine, compared to processors with equivalent power and cost. In turn, this enables better reliability, higher accuracy, lower latency and more advanced features to be available even on cost effective platforms.
• Single compute platform - with reduced resource consumption, the full robot software stack can run on a single compute platform.

"Industrial enterprises are seeking enhanced automation, through the use of innovative robotics, to expand manufacturing capabilities, improve overall cost and increase workplace safety." said Sunita Shenoy, Senior Director of Technology Products in the Federal and Industrial Solutions Division at Intel. "Robotic solution providers deploying RGo's Perception Engine can now benefit from a solution that's been optimized for Intel Core processors to help deliver increased performance, reduced power and improved efficiency in automation."

This new release of Perception Engine will enable robotics and automation solution providers to keep their proven Intel architecture-based products and upgrade their robots with the most advanced visual perception capabilities without the need to re-write their existing codebase.

Intel's recent support for direct camera connection over MIPI enables building simplified and cost-efficient robotics platforms with visual input while utilizing Intel's powerful platforms for advanced AI applications.

"Providers of robotic solutions often seek to upgrade their perception capabilities. Many are satisfied with their current Intel-based Industrial PCs and wish to consolidate all their software onto the same architecture. By providing breakthrough Perception Engine capabilities to robotic platforms powered by Intel IPCs, we enable them to save time, resources, and money that would otherwise be spent on replacing their hardware platforms," said RGo's CEO and Co-Founder, Amir Bousani.

The RGo team will be available for questions at Hall A, Booth 9518 at Modex 2024 (March 11-14 at the Atlanta Expo Center) and Hall 6, Stand D25 at LogiMAT (March 19-21 at the Stuttgart Convention Center).

Ingenious mini camera with 5 MP and autofocus

Ingenious mini camera with 5 MP and autofocus

Whether in a hand-held scanner, on a robot arm or in a photo booth: the tiny uEye XS makes sure that objects are always perfectly in focus. The tiny camera fits into any application. Discover now what the versatile 5 MP autofocus camera from IDS Imaging Development Systems is capable of! The uEye XS starter set is ideal for testing the camera. In addition to the compact USB2 camera, it includes a cable, a tripod adapter and a tripod. If the distance between the lens and the object is constantly changing, users benefit from industrial cameras with automatic focus. They eliminate the need for manual refocusing and ensure that objects or labels are always perfectly visible. However, there are more decisive factors for a good picture quality, such as natural colour reproduction and harmonious contrast. IDS has therefore equipped the uEye XS with many other practical automatic features familiar from consumer technology. This includes white balance, exposure and gain. As a result, it delivers the best possible result in every situation. If you want to fine-tune even more precisely, you can make the appropriate settings in the SDK (IDS Software Suite). Thanks to its small size and the proven USB2 interface, the uEye XS camera is suitable as a component in embedded vision systems. It is used, for example, in medical or security applications, in transport and logistics or in kiosk systems.
