Varjo selects Inuitive’s NU4100 vision processor for its next generation XR-4 Series virtual and mixed reality products

The XR-4 Series leverages the unparalleled capabilities of the NU4100 vision processor to achieve high-resolution, low-latency video streaming from multiple cameras, bridging the gap towards human-like visual perception

Ra’anana, Israel, February 05, 2024 Varjo, the technology leader in industrial-grade VR/XR hardware and software, recently announced its next-generation XR-4 Series headsets. The XR-4 Series deploys the NU4100 vision-on-chip processor to first bring multi-sensors, low-latency pass-through capability to the mixed reality market.

 

The XR-4 Series, unveiled at the I/ITSEC conference in November 2023, is designed for industrial users, with a goal to cater use cases where highest-level visual fidelity and immersion are critical. Boasting two 4K displays, the XR-4 headset offers a 50% wider field of view compared to its predecessors. It features brighter displays and a broader color palette, enhancing the overall visual experience. Equipped with two 20-megapixel front cameras, the XR-4 facilitates ‘video pass-through mixed reality’ allowing users to perceive their surroundings through the embedded lenses, offering a unique blend of virtual and real-world perspectives. The device also features inside-out tracking and Varjo’s controllers for seamless navigation in both digital and physical environments. To provide a comprehensive and immersive experience, the XR-4 utilizes the powerful capabilities of NVIDIA GPUs for photorealistic rendering. Currently open for enterprise orders, the XR-4 Series has been well received among key customer industries in training and simulation, defense, automotive, medical, and beyond.

 

The NU4100 vision-on-chip processor is the third generation of Inuitive’s vision processors series and is ideal for robotics, drones, VR, and edge-AI applications that demand multiple sensor aggregation, processing, packing, and streaming. It is specifically designed for XR headsets, robots and other applications that sense and analyze the environment using six, eight or more cameras, as they make real-time actionable decisions based on that input. The superior performance of the Varjo XR-4 Series headsets is enhanced by the advanced vision-based technologies integrated into the Inuitive NU4100 processor.

 

“When searching for the ideal partner to develop this platform, Inuitive emerged as the perfect combination of technology, service, and flexibility,” stated Timo Toikkanen, Varjo’s CEO. “Inuitive proved to be a highly innovative ally for crafting an end-to-end vision processing platform that meets Varjo’s demanding requirements.”

Inuitive and Visidon introduce a new, industry-changing low light enhancement technology for robotic applications and more Copy

Ra’anana, Israel, January 04, 2023 — Inuitive, a leading vision-on-chip processor company, and Visidon, an AI-based image and video enhancement software provider, announced today the release of a high performing, accurate, and real-time low light enhancement solution the two companies co-developed. The joint solution, now available for deployment, addresses the main issues in traditional noise reduction algorithms for a wide variety of edge devices, such as robotics, consumer electronic devices with cameras, and surveillance systems.

 

The game-changing solution combines Inuitive’s all-in-one NU4100 vision-on-chip processor which incorporates AI-powered image processing and depth sensing, with Visidon’s advanced low light enhancement technology, resulting in a significant leap in vision technology.

 

For robots to perform well in low light conditions, their vision processor must enhance and process low-light video quickly – a capability possible only on the Edge. Enhancement includes denoising mixed noise in the image due to low light, severe weather or environmental conditions. Visidon’s enhancement solution uses neural networks to effectively extract signals from the noise. Inuitive’s NU4100 vision-on-chip processor hosts the Visidon solution, allowing robots to utilize it for processing.

 

The new co-solution allows high-performance robotic applications and enhances consumer communication and surveillance quality in real time, even in the most challenging low light environments. It is a high efficiency, low power solution with impeccable accuracy applicable to critical use cases such as robot use at night and drone flights in the dark, which had only been available in the past via advanced and highly costly sensors.

 

Shlomo Gadot, CEO at Inuitive, commented: “We are very pleased to have partnered with Visidon, who are a great addition to our ecosystem of software partners. Through our co-developed solution with them, we now offer stellar image quality even in the most challenging light conditions, not only unlocking a huge market potential but also democratizing access to such technology.”

 

Markus Turtinen, Co-founder and CEO at Visidon, commented: “We are extremely pleased to be working together with Inuitive. Our partnership further expands our reach in the robotic applications market and beyond. We look forward to deepening this partnership.”

 

Both companies will attend CES 2023 on January 5–8 in Las Vegas. Interested parties can meet with Company representatives at Westgate Hotel, Inuitive Suite 630. To schedule a meeting, please click here.

Inuitive introduces groundbreaking new sensor modules to address challenges of AMR and AGV systems

Ra’anana, Dec 11, 2022. Inuitive, a Vision-on-Chip processor company, announced today the launch of its latest sensor modules: the M4.5S and the M4.3WN. Designed to easily integrate into robots and drones systems, both sensor modules are built around the NU4000 Vision-on-Chip (VoC) processor and integrates depth sensing and image processing with AI and VSLAM capabilities in order to provide robotic devices with human-like visual understanding.

 

The M4.5S provides robots with enhanced depth from stereo sensing along with AI-based obstacle detection and object recognition. It features the widest field of view in the industry at 88×58 degrees, shortest minimum-sensing-range of 9 cm, and wide dynamic operating temperature range of up to 50 degrees Celsius. The M4.5S is an easy to adopt, highly power efficient platform that is designed to function as a self-sufficient depth sensor module and shorten time to market for commercial robotic systems with industrial design fix and limitations.

 

Watch a short video about the M4.5S, here: https://youtu.be/Spxpj_8214M

 

The Company’s other newly launched sensor module, the M4.3WN, features accurate tracking and VSLAM navigation based on fisheye cameras and an IMU together with depth sensing and on-chip AI processing. This enables free navigation, localization, path planning, and static and dynamic obstacle avoidance – the main challenges for AMR and AGV systems. The M4.3WN is specially designed in a metal case to best serve in industrial environment conditions.

 

“Our new all-in-one sensor modules expand our portfolio targeting the growing market of autonomous mobile robots. Together with our category-leading Vision-on-Chip processor, we now enable robotic devices to look at the world with human-like visual understanding,” said Shlomo Gadot, CEO and Co-Founder of Inuitive. “Inuitive is fully committed to continuously developing the best performing products for our customers and becoming their supplier of choice.

 

The M4.5S and the M4.3WN sensor modules’ primary processing unit is the Inuitive all-in-one NU4000 processor. Both modules are equipped with depth and RGB sensors that are controlled and timed by the NU4000. Data generated by the sensors and processed in real-time at a high frame rate by the NU4000, is then used to generate depth information for the host device.

 

The Inuitive M4.5S and M4.3WN module sensors are available today. For more information and ordering, visit: M4.5S and M4.3WN
