TeraRanger Tower enabling robotic collision avoidance and autonomous navigation
Fantastic video of a Kobuki traveling in a maze and performing robotic localization, robotic collision avoidance and robotic navigation with the non-rotating multi-axis 2D scanner TeraRanger Tower. The robot recognizes the environment and navigates into it with a simple “click and go”. The on-board software automatically highlights in blue proximity obstacles and, very importantly, if a new obstacle enters the scene the robot avoids it and create its own alternative path to goal.
TeraRanger Tower is a simultaneous multi-axis scanner for SLAM and collision avoidance capable of replacing traditional laser lidar scanners in some applications.
It is totally silent and has zero moving parts, resulting in greater efficiency and reliability. It combines 8 TeraRanger One sensors and the TeraRanger Hub to create a lightweight, fully eye-safe scanner for SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) and collision avoidance on fast-moving ground and airborne robots. Calibrated distance data is streamed from a USB or UART port as an array of synchronized distances, in millimetres.
Terabee has performed years of joint projects with CERN on leading-edge physics for sensor-based solutions and is the first company supported by Innogex, the French Business Incubation Centre of CERN Technologies.
This company has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 850014
Husense, a smart building and smart retail solutions provider, selected and incorporated Terabee’s Time-of-Flight (ToF) People Counting L-XL technology into its prize winning solutions.
“The technology appeared to be the perfect fit for our platform and requirements and the team was incredibly enthusiastic and helpful. Their engineers worked extremely hard and very proactively to help integrate its people counting technology with our platform and as a result we have been able to quickly launch our solution within retail and hospitality and the business sector.”
