We currently focus on 3 verticals. Agriculture (horticulture), manufacturing (packaging), and the analysis of human behaviour (and derivative use cases). This enables us to build up the necessary vertical expertise and understand the particularities of certain subcultures. For example: it is close to impossible to get hard specifications in agriculture. You need to work around that by creating a demonstrator ( a minimal proof of concept to show that a newly introduced technique is possible) in an early stage of the cooperation.
Agriculture is an excellent match for AI and deep learning. There are so many types of fruits and flowers, with no standard shape or size, that heuristic programming simply doesn‘t cut it. We at Robovision realised early on that it is better to invest in a machine learning configuration. Advanced neural networks are the solution here.
In this farm 24 robots are running 16 hours a day to deliver flowers to retailers all over the world. Imagine the amount of love they generate.
Robovision is at its best when serving large robotic farms like this one in Mexico City. Did you believe countries with an average monthly salary under 500$ would be a no-go for AI Robotics? Think again. AI robots guarantee a constant high quality output day and night, while allowing the workers to focus on more challenging activities . And if you‘ve installed solar panels on your roof, greasing the joints is the only remaining cost for running these robots. Pepsico invested in RVAI 1.2 for its Dorito production and is now considering using it as a standard worldwide for this type of production.
MEDIA & SECURITY
Robovision is a pioneer in person detection in complex video streams. From safety applications to processing a television stream, we start by subsegmenting the human body in semantic parts (upper body, legs and arms, head). By doing this, we can detect particular clothing in a television show, or look for missing children with specific clothing in multiple streams. As a first in the world, we connected Genetec , the google of surveillance, with RVAI, linking the power of deep learning to the scaling of Genetec. With RVAI FaceQuest™ we can search live streaming content from big cities for individuals with specific properties. Robovision is currently partnering up with IBM PowerAI to scale up to hundreds of realtime streams. This will allow us to open up new pilot tracks.
