Luxonis is experiencing an exciting time as they observe the emergence of new markets with spatial AI cameras. They have recently addressed a common question about their key industries and why they are important.
Luxonis has a target list of ten key industries and is putting in the time, talent, and treasure to expand rapidly in each area.
- Agriculture & industrial equipment
- Consumer Robotics
- Energy & Utilities
Each industry has numerous unique applications that keep Luxonis’ growing team of 64 engineers busy. Let’s take a moment to highlight a few industries in particular:
Common applications in construction include detecting if workers are wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), people counting, and monitoring equipment operation. An example Luxonis customer is CobraVision who is using OAK cameras and RobotHub to monitor and improve safety at construction sites. Take a look at the video to see how CobraVision is able to check when workers are wearing PPE and track if vehicles are being operated safely near obstacles.
Warehouse operations is one of the areas with the most obvious opportunities to automate repetitive manual human labor. We are already witnessing 100% “lights out” warehouses that require no human labor to receive, sort, store, pack, and ship packages. Customers are seeking solutions that automate different types of warehouse steps such as pick and place, autonomous mobile robots moving goods, and various tracking systems. An example Luxonis customer is Rapyuta who is developing a fully autonomous forklift.
Transportation is a massive industry that has a lot of room for improvement in terms of both safety and efficiency. American commercial airlines are the gold standard example of what can be achieved with advanced sensing and automation systems. The data backs this up as seen in 2020 when 38,824 Americans died in a car crash, 743 in a train accident, 838 in a boating accident, and 0 on commercial airlines. And zero fatalities for commercial airlines in the United States in 2020 is no fluke as that result has been achieved most years over the last decade. One of the Luxonis customers tackling the transportation industry in a big way is Hivemapper who is building a decentralized road map with automotive users generating the data. Luxonis is helping Hivemapper deliver the dashcams needed for users to collect map data. The Hivemapper dashcam also can collect video data to quickly determine who is at fault when an accident occurs.
