SEEGRID Robots Coming Soon

It's been a while since we last reported on SEEGRID, the company working on Hans Moraveck's volumetric sensing technology. The company was started to commercialize Moraveck's robot vision and navigation ideas. Since 2003, SEEGRID has been doing R & D. Last year, the company announced it was working on its first product, the SEEGRID Smarttruck. Now, a reliable inside source has informed us the company is close to shipping real robots. Nothing is expected to be made public for several months but frame grabs from the vision system of a research prototype have been posted on Flickr. Video of the robot itself shot by an employee has also found its way onto the net. This could be big news as their robots will likely be the first completely vision-guided robots for commericial material handling jobs. SEEGRID's CEO, Scott Friedman, is listed as a speaker at the RoboBusiness 2006 conference in June 2006, so look for further news there.
