Video of the Week: 

WaveSense, which develops ground positioning radar for precise vehicle locations, has announced the release of its next-generation radar – Aegis – as well as changing its corporate name to GPR. The company said the new name reflects the shift towards establishing Ground Positioning Radar as an industry standard that “redefines what is possible in ADAS and AV by delivering vehicle positioning that works in nearly all conditions.”

Aegis, which is being piloted by automakers for series production, is the third generation of the company’s proprietary radar technology. The latest development cycle rendered a unit that is 80% smaller than the previous release, consuming less power while improving performance.

Featured Robot

PuduKettyBot400x275Pudu Robotics, which manufactures commercial service robots, has announced the global availability of KettyBot, the latest generation of its delivery and reception robot. The low-cost and high-efficiency system is equipped with a top-tier advertising display and artificial intelligence systems for delivering items to customers, such as high-traffic restaurants.

The compact size and forward-leaning C-shaped body of KettyBot allows it to traverse through a 55-cm minimum area, making it an ideal choice in complex and crowded environments, the company said. The KettyBot includes two models with removable trays and a rear cover, giving it more flexibility to perform tasks. Built-in PUDU SLAM multi-sensor technology with dual positioning and navigation, laser and visual, allows the robot to detect obstacles with more accuracy. In addition, accurate positioning and optimal path planning allow the robot to serve multiple tables in one run.

Robotics Market: Defense & Military


MilremTypeX 400x275

Milrem Robotics has announced teaming up with Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace to develop a new robotic combat vehicle (RCV), named the Nordic Robotic Wingman. The Wingman will be based on Milrem’s Type-X RCV and Kongsberg’s Protector Remote Turrets (RT) that will be chosen specifically to meet the needs of end users.

“Milrem Robotics and Kongsberg have agreed to jointly continue the development of the Type-X RCV by integrating Kongsberg’s systems to address the requirements of many countries interest in this type of technology, especially the Nordics and Western Europe, but also the U.S.,” said Sverker Svärdby, managing director of Milrem Robotics Sweden. “Combining our knowledge of robotic combat vehicles and Kongsberg’s wide range of systems and extensive expertise in defense systems development, we are capable of providing world-class systems based on customer needs.”

The Type-X provides equal or overmatching firepower and tactical usage to a unit equipped with infrantry fighting vehicles, and gives mechanized units the means to breach enemy defensive positions with minimal risk to their own troops. It can be fitted with a cannon up to 50 mm, anti-tank missiles and a tethered drone for continuous situational awareness.
