Samsung’s C-Lab class includes layer sensor, smart guitar and modular robot – TechCrunch


A number of high profile exhibitors are pulling out of next year’s CES. Samsung is among those big names to stand out for next week’s show – which always proves good exposure of the company’s massive reach in electronics, from TVs to washing machines and more. by occasional robots.

For the past two years, however, Samsung’s C-Lab division has been its CES secret weapon, showcasing some of the projects built by the company’s in-house incubator. Created by employees who have the ability to create favorite projects, C-Labs projects are not always practical, but they are often fascinating.

Indeed, these are things that are traditionally beyond the reach of a tech colossus like Samsung. Last year’s class, for example, included an artificial window and a smart highlighter. This year’s bundle breaks things down into three categories: C-Lab Inside, C-Lab Outside, and projects from Samsung.

Inside – the first of three stages – includes an AI-powered smartphone app called Piloto designed to improve device habits; PROBA examination service; Innovision, which is designed to detect eye alignment in infants; and ZamStar, a guitar with built-in LED guides for education. Outside, which was founded in 2018, is an accelerator that supports South Korean startups. This list includes nine companies. By Samsung:

  • Petnow, an AI-based biometric pet recognition solution
  • Digisonic, an immersive 3D audio solution for mobile devices
  • Verses, an interactive metaverse music app
  • bitsensing, a range of imaging radar technology solutions for autonomous driving and smart cities
  • SELECTSTAR, an AI-based data collection and labeling platform
  • RGT Inc., a multifunctional modular service robot
  • MoreDream Inc., an input system to improve accessibility and productivity for the visually impaired
  • Yellowknife, a vehicle display personalization platform
  • MONIT, a smart diaper care solution for elderly patients

Founded in 2012, C-Lab has worked with 406 companies so far – a number Samsung expects to reach 500 by some point next year.
