Evolution Robotics™ Software to be licensed by Sony Corporation Robot Division

02.09.2003


Evolution Robotics ER Vision™ Software to be licensed by Entertainment Robot Company – ERC – a Division of Sony Corporation

Evolution Robotics™ Inc., a leading provider of state-of-the-art robotics solutions, today announced a technology licensing agreement with Entertainment Robot Company – ERC – a division of Sony Corporation (NYSE:SNE). Evolution Robotics will work closely with Sony ERC to optimize ER Vision™ for use in future Sony ERC products.

Sony chose to work with Evolution Robotics because of the ease of use and potential of their technology, and because of the distinctive object recognition capabilities of ER Vision, which will substantially increase the functionality of Sony’s future entertainment robots.



Evolution Robotics offers comprehensive robotics solutions - software, embedded systems, and professional services - to assist OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) in developing and bringing to market state-of-the-art robotic products for consumer and industrial use.

Koji Kageyama, ERC’s General Manager of Product Development said, “Over the last four years, we have pushed the boundaries of what robots can do. We are excited to work with the Evolution Robotics’ team because they bring robotics-focused software expertise to the industry. Through this leading technology, we will continue to build new entertainment robots that are not only companions, but ones that offer real-world, practical applications.”

“Sony is the clear leader in the field of entertainment robotics and we’re honored to work with them,” said Bernard Louvat, CEO of Evolution Robotics. “Together we can continue to truly advance the future of robotics and make robots a part of our everyday lives.”

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
