TYZX, the 3D vision technology company, today announced that iRobot Corporation has chosen the TYZX DeepSea G2 Embedded Vision System (EVS) for several military robotics research projects requiring real-time vision and depth-perception. iRobot has demonstrated the ability to integrate the TYZX G2 EVS onto its PackBot® and Warrior™ platforms: rugged tactical mobile robots designed to perform dangerous search, reconnaissance and bomb-disposal missions while keeping troops out of harm’s way.
The TYZX G2 EVS provides:
“The TYZX G2 EVS provides our robots with the ability to sense and assess the surrounding environment,” said Tom Wagner, Vice President and Technical Director for iRobot. “The G2’s onboard processing capability, as well as its lack of moving parts, makes it a fitting sensor for our PackBot and Warrior platforms. Our robots are used in complex terrains and the G2 system provides sensor data needed to enable advanced capabilities on our platforms.”
“UGV platforms such as the iRobot PackBot have proven to be indispensable for warfighters and first responders,” said Ron Buck, President and CEO of TYZX. “Even in challenging lighting conditions, TYZX 3D vision systems provide the rich, real-time visual data, 3D data, and post-processed data (such as TYZX ProjectionSpace) these systems require for improved situational awareness and increased levels of autonomy.”
