ProMat 2023: Kudan to exhibit and present its visual and 3D Lidar SLAM solutions for intralogistics robotics use cases


Share on

Kudan Inc. (headquartered in Shibuya-ku, Tokyo; CEO Daiu Ko, hereafter “Kudan”) will be exhibiting at the upcoming ProMat conference to showcase its solution for applications within the manufacturing and supply chain industry. This event will be taking place on 20-23 March at McCormick Place, Chicago, USA.

ProMat is the largest international material handling, logistics and supply chain show and conference featuring over 1,000 leading solution providers, including Kudan. As robotics for intralogistic use cases will be one of main interests for those attending, Kudan will be presenting both its camera-based and 3D Lidar-based “Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping” (SLAM) technology, KdVisual and KdLidar. With the robustness of Kudan’s SLAM, customers can equip their robots with a positioning stack that is able to handle warehouse environments that are typically large and dynamic in nature. This provides companies with the flexibility of not needing to implement infrastructure-based positioning systems which can be costly and time consuming. Companies can quickly change the physical operational workflows of their robots or vehicles as their operations evolve, without needing to reinstall any infrastructure.

We will be demonstrating both single-stereo and multi-stereo visual SLAM (VSLAM) capabilities on our robots at the booth. Customers will be able to see first hand how certain use cases can benefit from having a multi-camera set up on their robots or vehicles. We will be also highlighting our recent partnership with Intel in a robot running Intel’s Edge Insight for AMR with Kudan’s KdVisual SLAM software. Intel’s EI for AMRs helps customers to cut down development time through its open, modular Software Development Kit (SDK). The included libraries and middleware allows code to be implemented and deployed to AMRs even if they have multiple hardware configurations.

Customers interested in 3D Lidar SLAM solutions will also be able to view demo robots equipped with Kudan’s KdLidar SLAM software. These robots will be using Kudan’s SLAM to both create a map and navigate themselves autonomously within the booth space. In collaboration with one of our Lidar partners, Hesai, we will be demonstrating our Lidar SLAM software on our robot using the QT128, a certified safety laser scanner qualifying as an ASIL B product under ISO 26262 and can be used in AMR systems classified as ASIL A, ASIL B, and ASIL C. We will also be presenting two Lidar sensors from our partner Robosense – the ‘RS-Bpearl’, which has a unique 360°×90° super wide field-of-view (FoV) with less than 10cm blind-spot detection area, as well as the ‘RS-Helios’, which has a 70° ultra-wide vertical FoV, fulfilling both long-range perception and near-field blind spot detection needs.

Whether for indoor or outdoor, simple or complex environments, participants can visit Kudan’s booth to understand which sensor and SLAM system would best suit their intralogistic robotics applications. We look forward to discussing our SLAM solutions with you at ProMat 2023!
