Robots are capable of performing a wide variety of tasks that are difficult or dangerous for humans to perform. To intelligently and accurately perform these tasks, they require mobility and the aptitude to explore, understand and function within various environments. For a robot to work autonomously, or problem-solve with human assistance, it requires sensor data to understand the human world and the ability to process the data and respond in a timely manner. The difficulty is that for certain applications, a robot needs to combine both human and machine vision capabilities. While performing independent tasks, machine vision suffices, but when functioning in partnership with a human operator, human vision capabilities are needed, hence, the need for a next generation vision system.
“Robots have incredible potential to expand human capabilities and performance in the real world,” says Nicholas Nadeau, CTO of Halodi Robotics. “Immervision is able to help our EVE service robots create even greater value, by allowing human operators, via a virtual reality (VR) headset, to respond with human intuition capabilities to the anomalies that may arise as robots interact with their dynamic environment.”
Immervision’s next-gen vision system enables machines with both visual systems, for multiple sensors and wiring. Robots can now navigate within hospitals or dangerous workplaces, and the vision system can be customized to the environment and specific tasks. The vision system will enable Halodi Robotics robots to better perceive their environment, collect better quality vision data for AI/ML pipelines, as well as providing an immersive VR experience to the operator of the robots.
“Halodi Robotics approached us when searching for a fast, responsive, and immersive visual system capable of delivering wide-angle visual data simultaneously to both machine and humans,” explains Patrice Roulet Fontani, VP of Technology at Immervision. “Increased responsive speed starts with a high-quality wide-angle lens and with our patented technology and AI algorithms, we are the natural choice to optimize the performance and situational awareness across Halodi Robotics entire vision pipeline.”
Immervision has spent over 20 years adding vision to machines. The company’s vision solutions are deployed into several markets, such as automotive, drones and consumer devices, to ensure whether a robot is picking up an object or performing a specific task, they have optimized hand-eye co-ordination. Immervision’s dewarping algorithm enhances its dual next-gen vision solution, ensuring correct proportions are maintained for the entire image and real-time video for both human and machine vision.
Halodi Robotics already has multiple enterprise customer pilot programs underway in Europe and the U.S. for security, retail and logistics applications, with broader deployment planned for later this year.
With over 20 years of innovation, Immervision creates solutions that see beyond human vision. Its Deep Seeing technology and renowned experts in wide-angle optical design and image processing enable smart devices with superhuman eyes to capture high quality visual and contextual data. The company invents, customises, and licenses wide-angle lenses and imaging software technology for AI, machine vision and user applications, from capture to display, in the mobile, automotive, robotics, security, and other industrial and consumer product industries.

Positive Results of EfficAPSI Real-World Study Confirm Significant Benefit of Sublingual Liquid AIT Treatment on the Onset and Worsening of Asthma in Patients With Allergic Rhinitis2.7.2022 15:08:00 CEST | Press release
Stallergenes Greer, a global healthcare company specialising in allergen immunotherapy (AIT), today announced positive data from its EfficAPSI real-world study. Presented at the 2022 European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) congress in Prague (Czech Republic), the real-world study confirmed significant benefit of sublingual liquid allergen immunotherapy treatment (AIT) on the onset and worsening of asthma in patients with allergic rhinitis. The retrospective longitudinal pharmaco-epidemiological real-world study included over 430,000 patients: more than 100,000 patients with allergic rhinitis with or without asthma treated with sublingual liquid immunotherapy and symptomatic drugs; compared to more than 330,000 patients with allergic rhinitis with or without asthma treated with symptomatic drugs only. The primary objective of the study was the evaluation of the impact of sublingual liquid AIT on the onset and worsening of asthma in patients with allergic rhinitis. St
