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: First diode for magnetic fields

Innsbruck quantum physicists have constructed a diode for magnetic fields and then tested it in the laboratory. The device, developed by the research groups led by the theorist Oriol Romero-Isart and the experimental physicist Gerhard Kirchmair, could open up a number of new applications.

Electric diodes are essential electronic components that conduct electricity in one direction but prevent conduction in the opposite one. They are found at the...

Im Focus: Nonstop Tranport of Cargo in Nanomachines

Max Planck researchers revel the nano-structure of molecular trains and the reason for smooth transport in cellular antennas.

Moving around, sensing the extracellular environment, and signaling to other cells are important for a cell to function properly. Responsible for those tasks...

Im Focus: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
