Embedded specialist Syslogic and Stereolabs, a pioneer in vision-basedsensing technology, today announced a strategic partnership to combine theirtechnologies. Syslogic's embedded computers and Stereolabs' stereo camerascomplement each other perfectly, enabling machines and vehicles to see,recognise and orientate themselves autonomously.
Both Stereolabs and Syslogic are members of AI pioneer NVIDIA's partnerprogramme. While Syslogic's AI-enabled embedded systems are able to makedecisions with virtually no latency, Stereolabs uses stereoscopy to provide 3Dand depth recognition.
"We are delighted to be working with Syslogic to pave the way fornew applications in autonomous robotics," says Cecile Schmollgruber, CEOand co-founder of Stereolabs. “Ultimately, robotics equipped with ourtechnologies will be able to execute complex tasks more efficiently andaccurately than ever. These capabilities are critical as industries fromagriculture to construction contend with rising demand, labor shortages, andchallenging working conditions."
In addition to the clever AI-based technology, Stereolabs and Syslogicboth pay particular attention to the robustness of their products. Eachcompany’s hardware solutions ’are mainly used in harsh environments. Typicalmarkets include agriculture, construction equipment and mobile robots.
Syslogic and Stereolabs have joined forces to advance 3D vision. Mobilerobots combined with computer vision are opening up applications ranging fromprecision farming and intelligent harvesting to autonomous farming. Syslogic'srugged AI computers and Stereolabs' ZED stereo cameras are also ideal forautonomous construction machines or mobile robots.
In addition to Stereolabs stereo cameras, Syslogic's NVIDIA Jetson-basedembedded systems can be coupled with other sensors such as lidar or radar. Thesystems can also be connected to a vehicle's bus system via CAN, and RTK (RealTime Kinematic) is available via multi-band GNSS. Vehicles and machines canthus be located or positioned with centimetre accuracy.
Stereolabs shares the same values as Syslogic, adds Raphael Binder, CEOof Syslogic. He says: "I look forward to working with Stereolabs toadvance computer vision and take the world a step further".
