Primary Use Cases
Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR)
In AMRs, PAL greatly simplifies the sensor stack to save time and cost. PAL easily performs the sensing functions for Obstacle Detection Obstacle Avoidance (ODOA), visual Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (vSLAM), and can be used for situational awareness such as obstacle recognition and people detection.
Ultra-Violet (UV) Disinfection is an effective way to make sure public places are free from germs. But it also introduces a unique need for PAL – to identify the presence of any person within a radius around the UV Disinfection machine. PAL, combined with Vision Intelligence Software provides a complete solution to this challenge.
Collaborative Robots (Cobots)
As a single vision system, PAL provides complete situational awareness so both the cobot and the human can safely and productively work together.
As a single vision system, PAL provides complete high-definition situational awareness with low latency so an operator can safely and effectively perform the required tasks from a remote location.
PAL is an ideal choice for smart city use cases. From a single camera, PAL can cover an entire room up to 400m2 to provide a detailed occupancy map and a digital twin of the entire environment.
