Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/21/2014 -- Manufacturing Revival Radio, a weekly podcast about the resurgence of American manufacturing, interviewed special guest Mitchell Weiss Chief Operations Officer. Todd Schnick and Todd Youngblood hosts of the radio program interviewed the material handling leader. Seegrid sponsored the show during the first day of MODEX 2014; the company is the maker of automated guided vehicles (AGVs) for the material handling industry.
Weiss explained, “The core technologies we use in our trucks are stereo cameras. Just like human beings, you tell how far something is away from you by how your two eyes focus on them differently. We take two pictures of the same thing at the same time, and we can look at the slight differences picture to picture, and that tells us how far away all the features are from the picture. It occurred to us a few years ago, that his stuff is useful in a lot of other things.”
