From the shelves of a warehouse to your kitchen sink, the real world is full of clutter. At CapSen Robotics, their goal is to provide a universal 3D computer vision system which enables computers to understand the physical world in all of its cluttered glory. Robots and computer vision systems are slowly making their way out of the factory and into less structured environments such as hospitals, warehouses, farms, and homes. Although recent advances are quite impressive, these systems are still limited in their ability to understand what they see and must be carefully programmed to get the bare minimum of information out of their sensory data in order to accomplish their assigned tasks. Their goal at CapSen Robotics is to change this—they have developed a suite of computer vision solutions based on new research from MIT on 3D object detection in cluttered scenes. This is a foundational technology that will have broad impact on a wide range of consumer, industrial, and defense markets, from computer gaming and augmented reality to logistics, manufacturing, and robotics. They are beta testing with system integrators like The Proud Company and robotics companies like IAM Robotics on robotic picking applications, and are partnering with a top 5 government contractor on a non-robotic warehouse application for a large Fortune 100 distributor. One of the robots using their object detection software at MIT recently took part in a robotic order fulfillment competition sponsored by Amazon and took 2nd place out of 31 teams.Something looks off?
