Throwback: Obama and Merkel visit ifm and pmd at Hannover Messe 2016

 

 

5 years ago, President Obama and Chancellor Merkel visited the booth of our mother company ifm electronic at Hannover Messe 2016 where our CEO Bernd Buxbaum gave a lasting presentation of our 3D ToF technology. Pictures that went around the world and still giving us goosebumps today.

We made a short video to take you back to that day and review – 5 years later - where we are today with our technology.

You can also check out, what ifm is presenting at this years Hannover Messe, regarding 3D vision for industrial applications:

The Live Event starts at 5pm MESZ (ticket required).

Older robot vacuum cleaners used a random, inefficient, and slow cleaning pattern. Smart robots generate a map of their environment using sensors and simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) to localize, providing users with a floorplan from which areas can be selected for cleaning, or restricted from access. This whitepaper describes designing slimmer robots with new features using an approach with novel time-of-flight cameras.

In collaboration with device manufacturer OMS and Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY), we have developed a new high-resolution camera solution that enables enhanced depth sensing and 3D scene understanding for next-generation smart consumer robots. The new hybrid Time of Flight solution combines two depth sensing concepts and helps significantly reduce maintenance effort and costs for smart robots.
