Zurich/Chicago - The robotics start-up Sevensense will be presenting its new solution for the testing of its autonomous robot system known as Alphasense Autonomy at the logistics trade fair ProMAT in Chicago. From March 20-23, Sevensense will hold live demos for its Alphasense Autonomy Evaluation Kit.

Sevensense Robotics, the Zurich-based supplier of industrial-grade 3D visual SLAM solutions, will be presenting its new Alphasense Autonomy Evaluation Kit at the ProMAT trade fair in Chicago. Between March 20 and 23, manufacturers of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) and automated guided vehicles (AGVs) can experience for themselves the solution for quick and easy testing of 3D Visual Autonomy technology, further details of which can be found in a press release.

As a result, the evaluation kit, as a standardized prototyping solution, enables every technical department to operate and test Alphasense Autonomy on their own vehicles. This is intended to accelerate the development and deployment of AMRs and AGVs, while also offering improved performance and expanding their operational capabilities.

Alphasense Autonomy is an autonomous robotics system from the Zurich start-up that combines the advantages of visual SLAM positioning (VSLAM) with Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based technology for local perception and navigation. This enables the robots to navigate precisely and reliably across both indoor and outdoor environments, including on uneven floors and ramps - and all without the need for any additional infrastructure.

“We observed that many AMR manufacturers considered Alphasense Autonomy as an option to incorporate 3D Visual Autonomy capabilities into their offering but integrating, testing, and validating the fit of this navigation technology in their own vehicles and their use cases still required more expertise and time than they were able to invest”, explains Gianluca Cesari, CBDO at Sevensense Robotics, in the press release.

Sevensense Robotics is headquartered in the Greater Zurich Area. According to information from the Greater Zurich Area location marketing organisation, the region can be regarded as “a global leader in robotics, drone technology and computer vision”. In this context, it highlights the close ties between industry, universities and authorities, among other aspects. ko
