ABB’s "Flexley Tug" autonomous mobile robot (AMR) uses Sevensense’s navigation technology, which aims to enable AMRs and humans to work simultaneously in common dynamic environments. ABB acquired Sevensense for an undisclosed sum. Courtesy of ABB. 

Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.

The acquisition follows ABB’s minority investment in Sevensense, which it made after Sevensense joined the company’s innovation ecosystem in 2021. ABB acquired ASTI Mobile Robotics in a separate transaction, also in 2021.

Following pilot customer projects in the automotive and logistics industries, ABB said that it will integrate Sevensense’s technology into the company’s AMR portfolio.

embedded vision
Embedded vision refers to the integration of computer vision technologies into various embedded systems, devices, or machines. Computer vision involves teaching machines to interpret and understand visual information from the world, much like human vision. Embedded vision takes this concept and applies it to systems where the processing occurs locally within the device, as opposed to relying on external servers or cloud-based services. Key components of embedded vision systems include: ...
