Refraction AI’s autonomous delivery robot


Refraction AI, founded by University of Michigan professors Matthew Johnson-Roberson and Ram Vasudevan, has launched the REV-1 autonomous delivery robot at the TechCrunch Mobility event, held in San Jose, California, on July 10.

According to the company, REV-1 is lightweight and low cost as there are no expensive lidar sensors on the vehicle – instead it uses a system of 12 cameras as its primary sensor system, along with radar and ultrasound sensors for additional safety.
