Their ability to perceive and understand the environment is fundamental to achieving a higher level of robot autonomy,” said Dor Zepeniuk, CTO and VP of Product, Inuitive. “Processing streams of input from multiple cameras expand the robot’s independence and flexibility, while the integrated dual-channel 4K ISP improves the system’s capabilities. Both, in turn, serve the end goal of designing powerful products that are lower on cost.”

 

Main features and capabilities of the new NU4100 include:

  • Proprietary Inuitive Depth Vision Accelerators (IDVA):
    • High-throughput, low-latency, depth-from-stereo HW engine
    • SLAM HW Accelerators
    • General purpose Imaging/Vision engines
