Adding a camera to an autonomous mobile platform (such as a car or a robot) enables our 3DAI™ Localisation component to track how that platform is moving. This process of estimating the ego motion is called odometry or positioning. Our software analyses data from the camera (in real time) to understand how the pose (position and orientation) of the platform is changing relative to its surroundings. If a 3D map is available, our algorithms can also identify the exact location in the map.
Localization is a crucial building block for enabling robust higher levels of autonomy in robotic systems. We support various processing platforms including Raspberry Pi, smartphones and NVidia GPUs and can work with different sensors including cameras, IMUs, GNSS and LIDAR.
The technology developed by Univrses in 3DAI™ Localisation has already been deployed in real-world applications, including autonomous driving and domestic robotics..
