A new partnership with machine vision technology provider, Robotic Vision Technologies (RVT) is just one in a series of collaborative efforts from Intellectual Ventures (IV) to provide the best technology in its industry.
The dynamic growth of the U.S. and international robotics market is driving demand for precision and reliability in vision systems. IV recognized this and partnered with RVT because of the company's technological and industrial expertise. IV predicts the partnership will increase its presence in the world market for machine vision systems.
"We believe that RVT has some of the best vision guidance software for robots on the market today," write IV in a recent press release. "RVT's software and technology is used by the world's leading robot manufacturers and its products are installed in hundreds of locations worldwide. We will be working with RVT by providing them access to our global network of inventors and collaborating with them on new inventions. We will also help strengthen their existing patent portfolio. Finally, we will help introduce the RVT suite of technology and software products to robotics and other companies around the world."
In November, IV formed a similar partnership with optical hardware technology manufacturer, Visualant. IV has partnered with numerous small- and medium-sized companies in scientific fields. The company plans to form several more innovative collaborations in the coming months.
