In the past two years, artificial intelligence technology has become increasingly mature, robotics, drones, intelligent security and intelligent manufacturing are deeply integrated with artificial intelligence, and computer vision technology has become a representative of the power of change.
Camsense is in line with the development of the times, focusing on the development of high-precision positioning vision sensors, with its own unique technical advantages - monocular vision spatial positioning technology as the core, to provide core technology and product support for various artificial intelligence applications.
Recently, Christopher, the founder and CEO of Camsense, talked to reporters and introduced us the current situation of the company's development and the future opportunities and challenges, the following is the summary of views:
Q: What crises have you and your team experienced in the startup and how did you resolve them?
During the start-up period, based on the previous technical accumulation and practical experience, the company chose to start from the TV field, and the first big proprietor was Crypto. With the impact of cell phones and computers, TV start-up time is getting shorter and shorter, and QvodPlayer plans to transfer the content of smart terminals such as cell phones and PADs to TVs and other large screens to show and interact with them, bringing users a better Internet entertainment experience and reviving the C-position of TV family entertainment. Wang Xin as an angel investor is optimistic about Camsense's technical solutions and wants to realize intelligent operations such as long-distance remote control and physical games through 0TT set-top box, combined with Camsense's camera.
Fast broadcast also gave Camsense a piece of office space in Mycron Technology Building, for startups, it was like meeting the east wind on a sunny day, however, but three months, fast broadcast happened, for Huanchuang is in a critical moment of life and death. So carry out emergency self-help, in July 2014, we ushered in the real sense of the first customer - Skyworth, providing cameras for Skyworth TV sets. Then tightly into the VR field, its research and development based on monocular vision positioning technology positioning camera Camsense M2, performance against the Oculus constellation system, positioning accuracy to do less than 2 mm, 10% more accurate than the Oculus positioning system.
But the emerging industry without the education of the giant, VR/AR industry quickly cooled down, but during this period, Camsense's monocular spatial positioning technology practiced a golden armor and silver scales, positioning accuracy improved significantly, which also laid a solid foundation for its entry into robotics, industrial/medical and today can look askance at industry giants in the field of VR/AR.
Q: Has the company's development been affected by the epidemic, and is it more of a challenge or opportunity gained? What are the currentchallenges? What are the next new development plans?
At the most serious time of the epidemic (that is, the stage of resuming work after the year), because of various personnel and transportation restrictions, workers of our LiDAR production line could not start on time, and the price of raw materials also rose, which delayed the delivery of our products to a certain extent, but fortunately our customers were more understanding, and we finally finished the delivery, and other things were not particularly affected.
On the one hand, we financed a sum of money before this "black swan" event, so we have enough funds to support the normal operation of our company, which has a greater advantage in terms of funds compared with other friends. On the other hand, the objective environment factors, may close down some companies, and we can survive and live very well in such an environment, which is undoubtedly a great opportunity, and I believe that we will have more space to occupy the market in the future.
Next, we will complete a new round of financing plan to provide strong support in the development of products, technology and market. We will continue to invest more in LIDAR and VR/AR to ensure that we win a bigger market share, and we will also continue to explore the technical aspects of industrial/medical fields to make the technology more solid and build a higher competitive barrier for the company.
Q: What do you think about industrial innovation? Or how important is innovation to a company?
Industrial innovation is a systematic and integrated work
1. The leaders of a company must have a sense of innovation themselves, i.e. a propensity to innovate, but this is not the same as a propensity to take risks.
2、The company must have an innovative environment inside the company. The innovative activities of the company do not only depend on the leaders but also need the colleagues to work together, which is the value that our company has been adhering to: innovation, sharing and rigor.
3、The strength of the company, as the saying goes, it is difficult for a clever woman to cook without rice, innovation requires capital investment and talents to join, and we have both of these aspects at present.
4、always pay attention to market changes, for different stages of market demand, need to use different methods of industrial innovation.
