Products for Discrete Manufacturing & Machine Control
Autonomously moving drones and other robots must observe their environment and interpret their observations without interruption. Using current technologies, this requires more energy than the batteries of a lightweight device can provide. That is why VTT and its partners are developing a fast, safe and energy-efficient machine vision system inspired by the human vision system.
