PRIMARY USE CASES
ROBOTIC VACUUM CLEANERS
PAL Mini is a smart addition to robotic vacuum cleaners. Even in low-lighting conditions, its high-resolution and depth accuracy can detect very small obstacles on the ground and can determine the terrain characteristics so the correct vacuum technique can be applied and to improve localization performance. All at low-cost, low-power and in a small form-factor.
Ultra-Violet (UV) Disinfection is an effective way to make sure public places are free from germs. But it also introduces a unique need for PAL Mini – to identify the presence of any person within a radius around the UV Disinfection machine. PAL Mini, combined with Vision Intelligence Software provides a complete solution to this challenge.
PAL Mini is exceptional for domestic robots as depth distance and cost are optimized for this use-case. Operating with low latency, PAL Mini can detect the smallest obstacles on any surface including toys, pens, and wires.
AUTONOMOUS MOBILE ROBOTS
PAL Mini is a great option to replace proximity sensors with visual intelligence. Small and cost-optimized, PAL Mini can not only detect a small obstacle in an AMR blind spot, but it can recognize it and understand terrain characteristics.
At 2.5W, PAL Mini is the smallest and lowest-cost omnidirectional 3D camera. It is available with either USB3.0 or MIPI interface.
