Leadership Perspective:

Peter Chen, CEO and Co-Founder of Covariant: “Robotics Foundation Models require access to a vast amount of high-quality multimodal data. These models require data that reflects the wide range of information a robot needs to make decisions, including text, images, video, physical measurements, and robot actions.”

Pieter Abbeel, Chief Scientist and Co-Founder of Covariant: “Recent advances in Generative AI have demonstrated beautiful video creation capabilities, yet these models are still very disconnected from physical reality and limited in their ability to understand the world robots are faced with.”

Capabilities of RFM-1:

Physics World Model: RFM-1 can predict how objects will react to robotic actions, enhancing speed and reliability by simulating future scenarios.

Language-Guided Programming: By understanding English language commands, RFM-1 facilitates collaboration between humans and robots, reducing barriers to customization.

Learning from Self-Reflection: RFM-1 enables robots to learn and improve based on their own actions, reducing ramp-up time for new scenarios or items.

Availability and Demonstrations:

RFM-1 capabilities can be experienced at Covariant’s headquarters in Emeryville, CA, by appointment. Live demonstrations are also available at the MODEX 2024 Trade Event in Atlanta, GA, from March 11 to March 14, 2024.

About Covariant:

Established in 2017, Covariant is at the forefront of AI Robotics, delivering Robotics Foundation Models to meet the needs of leading retailers and logistics providers worldwide. With a global presence and a diverse portfolio of AI-powered robotic picking applications, Covariant is revolutionizing industries across continents.

This unveiling of RFM-1 signifies a leap forward in robotics technology, promising enhanced autonomy, efficiency, and adaptability in various domains.
