GIM ROBOTICS PRESENTS, SPONSORS AND EXHIBITS AT ADVANCED AUTONOMOUS AND ROBOTICS FORUM OF NON-ROAD MOBILE MACHINERY
The autonomy level of modern working machines is going up across the wide field of industries. So much so, that the line between working machines and field & service robots starts to disappear. To perform well in autonomous/semi-autonomous mode and to move safely in all-weather conditions, a machine needs not only to understand the environment around it, but it also must be able to localize itself in that environment to perform the actual working task, including for example the navigation and potential tool system operations.
In many cases, GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) or supportive infrastructure (e.g., beacons, markers) based localization complimented with odometry information puts the machine on the map and camera-based sensory set gives the machine eyes for the near environment. Works like a charm when things are peachy. Not so well, when GNSS signal quality or availability is compromised. And definitely not so well, when the used camera system is not capable for either situational awareness or localization operations when weather turns nasty or quick contrast changes blow-up even the best of the systems.
That is the main reason why so many OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) have been contacting GIM Robotics lately. When you are planning to start selling some new autonomy features for your expensive working machines, you must be sure that the machine can operate everywhere and in all-weather conditions. That is our specialty. Our core competence. We can localize any machine with centimeter-level accuracy everywhere and in any condition. We do it by using map-based positioning. Additional bonus is that the sensors used for the positioning, provide a strong foundation for the vital situational awareness. Two for the price of one, one could say.
JOIN US IN FRANKFURT
If you are interested to hear how it is done and how you could integrate our solution into your company’s roadmap, make sure that you participate in the Advanced Autonomous and Robotics Forum of Non-Road Mobile Machinery (NRMM) 22-23rd September 2022, in Frankfurt, Germany. The conference focuses on how automation and robotization are changing the future of NRMM and what will be the main challenges. It brings together OEMs of both standard equipment, autonomous equipment, and solution providers.
YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS ONE
Our CTO and partner Dr. Jose Luis Peralta will have a presentation titled as “Fundamentals of Map-Based positioning for mobile machines in GNSS-challenged environments”, in which he will give an overview of the status of the various outdoor positioning solutions, present some of our public use cases in GNSS-challenged environments, and finally describe the map-based positioning principles and gives some insights how to evaluate the achieved performance.
MEET TEAM GIM ROBOTICS
We at GIM Robotics believe that this new Advanced Autonomous and Robotics Forum of NRMM organized by Avlante Group, will become a major event for various stakeholders across several industries including construction, agriculture, and mining. For that reason, GIM Robotics is a proud sponsor of the event, and will have a stand onsite. Our CEO Pertti Lukkari will accompany Jose to Frankfurt to further strengthen our presence. This dynamic duo is available during the meeting for old and new friends. Based on our earlier experiences, these kinds of events have been extremely valuable for us. We are among our peers, and presentations and long discussions with them, will lay solid foundations for business relationships and even long friendships.
If you have a chance, go, and listen to Jose’s eye-opening presentation about our map-based position solutions and shake hands with Jose and Pertti. We might have exactly what the doctor ordered for your future NRMM activities.
