About Roboception

Roboception GmbH develops software and hardware products for real-time perception and localisation of robotic systems. The name Roboception is comprised of the words “Robotics” and “Perception”.

Roboception offers innovative navigation, real-time perception and manipulation solutions for robotic systems. Customer-specific software products for a variety of hardware platforms are developed in compliance with the customer’s individual plug-and-produce requirements.

Roboception’s innovative sensor solutions enable customers across all robotic domains to generate real-time, time and location-dependent 3D data products and to equip robotic systems with robust and seamless infrastructure-free navigation. Following the concept of “Sense. Reason. Act.”, 3D technologies such as object localization, recognition and scene analysis, robotic manipulation and application development complete the portfolio.

The solutions include highly intuitive, user-friendly interfaces, parametrization and programming, hence a detailed robotic knowledge is not required for their setup and operation.

The founders

Dr. Michael Suppa

Managing director (CEO) and responsible for business models, as well as strategy and technology development.

Dr. Heiko Hirschmüller

Responsible for development of stereo data processing and visual navigation.

Dr. Korbinian Schmid

Roboception was founded in March 2015 by three former employees of the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics at the German Aerospace Center (DLR). Together, they have more than 60 years of professional experience not only in robotics, stereo imagery processing and visual navigation, but also in strategic development, project management and personnel management.

It is their common goal to establish Roboception as a successful company which delivers a key component for the advancement of robotic systems in various application areas, and will hence enable an essential expansion of the field of robotics as a whole in the coming years.

We hire

Roboception seeks to build up a long-term know-how in all areas, from perception to action planning.
