Inuitive Introduces Sensor Modules for AMRs and AGVs

Inuitive, a Vision-on-Chip processor company, has announced the launch of its latest sensor modules: the M4.5S and the M4.3WN. Designed to easily integrate into robots and drone systems, both sensor modules are built around the NU4000 Vision-on-Chip (VoC) processor and integrate depth sensing and image processing with AI and VSLAM capabilities to provide robots with what Inuitive characterizes as “human-like visual understanding.”

The M4.5S provides enhanced stereo sensing depth along with AI-based obstacle detection and object recognition. It features a field of view of 88 by 58 degrees, minimum-sensing-range of 9 cm, and wide dynamic operating temperature range of up to 50 degrees Celsius. Inuitive said the M4.5S is an easy to adopt, highly power efficient platform that is designed to function as a self-sufficient depth sensor. The M4.3WN, features tracking and VSLAM navigation based on fisheye cameras and an IMU, as well as depth sensing and on-chip AI processing. This enables free navigation, localization, path planning, and static and dynamic obstacle avoidance. The M4.3WN is mounted in a metal case for industrial environments.

“Our new all-in-one sensor modules expand our portfolio targeting the growing market of autonomous mobile robots. Together with our category-leading Vision-on-Chip processor, we now enable robotic devices to look at the world with human-like visual understanding,” said Shlomo Gadot, CEO and co-founder of Inuitive.

The M4.5S and the M4.3WN sensor modules’ primary processing unit is the Inuitive NU4000 processor. Both modules are equipped with depth and RGB sensors that are controlled and timed by the NU4000. Data generated by the sensors and processed in real-time at a high frame rate by the NU4000 are used to generate depth information for the host device.

Key features:

  • Wide Field of View (88°x58° FoV) depth
  • Sensing range (9 cm -2.5 M)
  • Registered RGB and depth
  • Wide dynamic operating ambient temperature up to 50 degrees Celsius
  • Small size and easy to adopt ( 90,25,25 mm)
  • SDK for Windows, Linux, and Android OS
  • ROS support
  • AI framework
