World…Meet Rosie

January 10, 2018

A Croatian robotics company is helping to create your first home robot assistant

(Zagreb) Croatian robotics start-up – Gideon Brothers – is one of a select few partners behind the development of a humanoid robot that is being unveiled by Aeolus Robotics at CES 2018 (booth #25402), in Las Vegas.

The robot, called „Rosie“, is a first-generation household robot that can do things like bring food, pick up clutter around the house and locate lost items. Rosie is intended to help busy parents and independent senior citizens throughout the world. Aeolus Robotics’ CTO, Dan Oblinger, is considered a leading expert in Artificial Intelligence (AI), and was one of the key leaders behind IBM’s Watson development team.

Gideon Brothers’ engineers were involved in creating software for the robot’s arm, simulation tools for its performance, visualization tools for its mobility, and integration and test systems for its performance.

About Gideon

We are developing a robot autonomy that layers deep learning on top of camera-based perception which creates a new type of robot vision that is as reliable but 10x cheaper than LIDAR and (unlike LIDAR) data-rich. The combination of hardware and software carries the capacity to convert a wide variety of industrial machines and vehicles into autonomous mobile robots that are safe in dynamic, people-filled spaces.

Our first commercially available product is an autonomous indoor transport vehicle, capable of moving 800kg. The intended market are logistics and manufacturing clients.
