Camera-based sensors for smart robots


RoVi was founded by three engineers as a spin-off from Technical University of Munich (TUM). Our common vision is to create robots that improve our daily lives. Robots that are simple and low-cost yet smart enough to take over dull, dirty and dangerous tasks.

Nicolas and Clemens have been working together for several years in the field of robotics. Our camera-based sensing technology mainly comes from Nicolas' research in computer vision and visuo-haptic perception. Clemens' research focus was in haptics and telepresence. Stefan is an experienced electronics and hardware engineer.
