Camera-based sensors

Technology Overview

Visevi Robotics offers the world's first completely camera-based sensor system for robot arms and grippers. Our patented solution relies on an image processing software and features rich sensory feedback.

Low-cost passive elements substitute electronic sensors for joint positions, force/torque and tactile data. Positions are determined using visual markers, while force sensing relies on deformable elements, such as rubber foam. A camera observes these elements remotely. The physical measurements are calculated from the image by our software.

Visevi’s sensor software greatly simplifies the mechanics, hardware design and wiring of robot arms – and thus enables their use in low-cost automation, service robotics and consumer applications. The robot is continuously auto-calibrated, enabling the use of low-cost structural parts even for precise manipulation tasks.

Our camera-based sensing technology enables lightweight, low-cost and mobile robot arms. They fit on any desk or workbench to assist a human worker. With integrated computer vision, they are easily adaptable and can detect objects.

Take your grasping applications to the next level! Handle objects of different shapes, rigidities and materials with a single versatile and self-adapting gripper. With our tactile sensor, you get rich feedback about the grasped object and the grasping state.

Commission small parts such as screws, fittings or plastic part in exact quanities for packagaing or for subsequent worksteps. The robot can do this step even right on the workbench using our versatile grasping system, or any another manipulator.

Monitor the status of your automation systems by adding our software-based sensors. Data and statistics are processed on-site or in the cloud and presented on any web browser.

Package parts or components provided by a machine or a human worker. Our camera-based system flexibly localizes new parts, picks them and places them to a free spot.
