NESS ZIONA, Israel, Aug. 22, 2018 — The temi Co., a developer of robotic technology, has selected the NSI3000 CMOS image sensor from Newsight Imaging for its robot temi's 3D vision system.

Temi is a personal robot that aims to become an essential addition to every home. Featuring a touchscreen atop a 3.2-ft-tall minimalist frame, temi traverses the home without colliding with furniture, providing a host of useful, connected capabilities on demand. The NSI3000 chip is embedded in the robot’s lidar system, which controls the essential functioning of the personal robot’s navigation.

Temi is an open platform for applications that interact with people, such as interactive games, educational apps for fun learning, medical apps, and more. When away from home, a smartphone connection to temi facilitates the owner’s continued physical presence in the home: to talk to family members or to make sure that everything is okay.

"While considering the requirements for a state-of-the-art vision system for our robot, we evaluated several solutions and chose Newsight’s chip, which demonstrated outstanding performance and the best return on investment,” said Yossi Wolf, founder and CEO of temi. “Our robot's navigation system is highly advanced, and we are very pleased with market demand for our products, as customers such as Google begin to acquire our robots".

"We are very pleased with the collaboration with temi" said Eli Assoolin, CEO and co-founder of Newsight Imaging: "Once again, our superior technology proved to be the best fit, this time for a personal robot application. We are seeing strong, growing demand for accurate and affordable 3D systems, and are currently selling the chip to leading vendors of lidars, robots, Industry 4.0, and automotive, as we develop our next-generation area sensor for mobile, surveillance, and automotive applications. Temi is an exciting use case of our chip, and we see the vast potential of a Newsight chip included in a robot we believe will be in every home ... as a firm indication that we are on the right track.”
