Protein Crystal Harvesting


Square One's Universal Micromanipulation Robot explores the use of a Machine Vision system in order to locate crystals, which can then be quantified to determine suitability for harvesting. The system is equipped with a video camera capable of capturing magnified video images in a well of interest at a rate of 30 frames per second. These images can be transfered to image analysis software, which has tools that can locate and evaluate objects within the well.

Vision Guided Manipulation


Many advanced applications require robots to operate in cluttered, unstructured environments. The addition of Square One's sophisticated machine vision technologies enables our robots to locate objects within their vicinity, determine na object's size and shape, and effectively engage objects of interest. This results in robots and dexterous manipulators capable of operating with an unprecedented degree of precision and autonomy.
