The integration of Lifineo with JOYCE’s visual cortex will give her superhuman sight and lead to the development of innovative industrial and consumer applications for transport, health, retail, as well as IoT.
March 19, 2021 – Immervision is announcing a new partner for JOYCE, the world’s first humanoid robot to unite the computer vision community: Lifineo. Lifineo is bringing a new innovative technology called Voice on Light (Vol) ® to revolutionizes people and indoor objects geolocation and generates data through light. Immervision’s JOYCE will integrate Vol® technology to further evolve machine perception and help deliver human-like vision and beyond.
Lifineo will provide its unique technology and expertise to enhance JOYCE sense of indoor perception. By modulating the intensity and frequency of LED lighting in a way that cannot be seen by human eye, Vol® can efficiently locate and send information to objects or people, leading to the development of a wide array of powerful applications.
Indoor geolocation with a very high degree of accuracy can’t be achieved at a low-cost with traditional technologies. With Vol®, JOYCE will know the exact location of people and objects in her environment, therefore simplifying real time interaction.
Lifineo integration with JOYCE’s visual cortex will give her superhuman sight and lead to the development of innovative industrial and consumer applications for transport, health, retail, as well as IoT.
“We’re very happy in partnering with Immervision on JOYCE project,” said Stefano ANDRONICO General Manager and Co-founder of Lifineo, “Pushing the boundaries of machine perception is an exciting challenge which leads to the development of highly valuable applications.”
“The vision of Lifineo is inspiring and we’re proud to count the inventor of Vol® amongst our partners” said Pascale Nini, CEO of Immervision. “Collaborating with their talented team will greatly enhance JOYCE vision capabilities and enable exciting new use cases.”
Immervision is actively seeking additional members from academia and industry to join the JOYCE partnership. To facilitate this collaboration, Immervision will be making a development kit available to developers, universities, and technology companies. This kit will allow partners in the JOYCE program to add additional sensors, software, and artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to enhance JOYCE’s perception and understanding of her environment to solve computer vision challenges.
Equipping machines with human-level perception, especially vision, will have a massive economic impact across a wide range of industries. Immervision encourages all members of the computer vision community to become collaborators in the JOYCE partnership, to use their technologies to upgrade JOYCE, and to reap the benefits of an exciting future.
Machine perception is truly a superpower that will help to transform the world.
