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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
