Mayfield Robotics uses pmd’s 3D Depth Sensing Technology

May 31st, 2018 – Siegen/Germany, Santa Clara/USA – pmdtechnologies is happy to announce that Mayfield Robotics uses pmd’s 3D depth sensing technology for bringing their adorable home robot to life. Mayfield Robotics is the maker of Kuri, a first-of-its-kind home robot designed with personality, awareness, and mobility who adds a spark of life to any home. With the help of pmd’s custom Time-of-Flight depth sensing technology Kuri is able to navigate and move around inside the house. Autonomy especially plays a key role in bringing personality and intelligence to Kuri.

Using the pmd’s Time-of-Flight solution, a set of illuminators at the bottom of Kuri continuously emits invisible light into a room. The TOF sensor measures the time it takes for this light to bounce back from what is in the room, and when you put all of this data together, the adorable robot can “see” the scene in 3D.
“pmd helped bring Kuri to life as it’s their technology that powers robot’s depth sensor. This custom depth sensor is the key ingredient that enables Kuri to move around on her own,” said Jason Umhoefer, V.P. of Hardware, Mayfield Robotics.

Mayfield Robotics shipped the first production of Kuri robots in December 2017 and orders placed now will ship in Fall 2018.

To see a live demo of Kuri in action, visit pmd at AWE 2018, Booth No. 824.
