  • Offer Profile
  • RoVi was founded by three engineers as a spin-off from Technical University of Munich (TUM). Our common vision is to create robots that improve our daily lives. Robots that are simple and low-cost yet smart enough to take over dull, dirty and dangerous tasks.

    Our vision is to make intelligent robots available to everyone – to help us in manufacturing, in the office and at home. Sensors are a key technology to bring robots “out of the cage”, but current sensor systems are complex and expensive.

    Visevi Robotics offers the world's first completely camera-based sensor system for robot arms and grippers. Our patented solution relies on an image processing software and features rich sensory feedback.

      • Our technical solution

      • Our intelligent gripping solution integrates two grayscale/color cameras, an industrial 2-jaw gripper, as well as universal fingers in a compact package with a standard mount. The fingers are equipped with a layer of rubber foam to support camera-based tactile sensing.

        The core of our sensing technology is an image processing software, which derives physical sensor signals from the observation of the rubber foam's deformation during contact. Hence, the sensor functionality is shifted from complex and dedicated hardware modules into our intelligent sensor software. This sensor software provides rich feedback about the grasping process, including tactile/pressure profile, grasping force, gripper opening, object position/count, object shape, object deformation and detailed grasping statistics. Using this data, our multi-goal grasp controller enables intelligent and flexible grasping of varying objects.

        Our patented sensor principle allows you to simply replace or adapt the gripper's fingers. This is due to the fact that no wiring is needed in the fingers, since the rubber foam is completely passive and without any integrated electronics.

        • Sensitive element (rubber foam bar), with mounts for common grippers
        • USB3 camera
        • Sensor software with ROS integration
        • Bootable USB stick
        • Web-based interface
          • Camera-based tactile sensor

          • Tactile sensors provide a pressure or contact profile, similar to touch we feel on our skin. They offer rich feedback about the grasping process and are thus essential for adaptive and sensitive grasping processes. Our camera-based solution requires only a passive and deformable material, which deforms on pressure. Our image processing software derives a tactile signal from the observed deformation.
          • Exemplary application: gripper fingers

          • Our camera-based tactile sensors are easily attachable to gripper fingers, since they do not require any wiring.
          • Different shapes and sizes

          • Since the sensing element is passive and deformable, it can be adapted to any shape and size.
        • Technology

            • Visevi Robotics offers the world's first completely camera-based sensor system for robot arms and grippers. Our patented solution relies on an image processing software and features rich sensory feedback.
            • Low-cost passive elements substitute electronic sensors for joint positions, force/torque and tactile data. Positions are determined using visual markers, while force sensing relies on deformable elements, such as rubber foam. A camera obserses these elements remotely. The physical measurements are calculated from the image by our software.
            • Visevi’s sensor software greatly simplifies the mechanics, hardware design and wiring of robot arms – and thus enables their use in low-cost automation, service robotics and consumer applications. The robot is continuously auto-calibrated, enabling the use of low-cost structural parts even for precise manipulation tasks.
