AI-Powered Suitcase Following by Side
By providing a true hands-free and worry-free travel experience, Ovis by ForwardX is tailored for travelers with modern-day conveniences. It integrates groundbreaking proprietary computer vision technology, Visual Simultaneous Location And Mapping (VSLAM), and artificial neural network algorithms developed by ForwardX, so that it can follow autonomously side-by-side of you.
"The Ovis smart luggage followed me around so well I might buy it." - Tom's Guide
"The ForwardX Ovis is the first smart suitcase custom-built to follow you." - Digital Trends
"Considering the funding ForwardX has already secured $10 million and Chee's pedigree, the company should be able to work things out." - Forbes
"This groundbreaking 'seeing' suitcase is the ultimate carry-on sidekick." - Maxim
Through a series of complex algorithms, we have created an AI that not only “see” as we do, but also identify what it is seeing. What's more, Ovis' side-follow technology is far more advanced then rear following because of the requirement of prediction algorithms. With these state of the art algorithms, Ovis is able to easily stay by your side at all times so you don’t have to be constantly looking over your shoulder just to see your luggage.
The obstacle avoidance algorithm of Ovis is based on self-driving technology. This innovative technology is able to accurately sense and assess the environment, calculate the distance, and estimate the direction and route to avoid potential obstacles, with a deviation precision of +/- 1cm.
The irremovable batteries can be a major headache for other smart suitcases. But not with Ovis, with the press of one button, you can pop out the battery, go through security and then pop it in and continue enjoying your hands-free luggage.
Ovis' large interior volume of 34L can easily hold enough items for a whole week trip. With durable yet lightweight material, Ovis makes your travel lite and smart.
Deciphering the concept of the unibody design, and cooperating with TUMI's top manufacturer. Ovis provides you with the greatest efficiency and performance with the premium material that is both durable and lightweight. To ensure an extra protection, carbon fiber is used for the corners of Ovis’ wheels.
Clocking in at a speed of 3m/s (6.7 mph), Ovis’ revolutionary rear-wheel drive operates quieter and more swift than traditional wheels. Ovis is still a completely functional piece of luxury luggage even at zero percent battery. All four wheels will become omnidirectional, allowing a smooth roll on the ground and a buttery smooth luggage drag.
The favorited feature of Ovis is its capability to charge any and all of your devices on the go. Free yourself from searching for outlets at the airport! With Ovis, you will always be prepared for your social media updates, your favorite TV show and your last bit of work before boarding.
One of the most valuable features of Ovis is the ability to know how much your luggage weighs at any point so you never have to worry about being overweight for your carry-on. Ovis is able to track the weight in real-time by a system of complex mathematical equations relating to how hard the motor is working, and how far Ovis has traveled. This can simplify life beyond belief when you are packing so you don’t over-pack or worry about under-packing.
We are always in constant worry with many “hands-free” devices get lost at any point, even though the system says it is steal-proof. With Ovis, this isn’t a worry due to the Anti-Lost Smart Band. The smart band will vibrate the second that your Ovis is more than 2 meters away from you. It also alerts the owner when the battery of Ovis is running low or when Ovis is experiencing other problems that might need tech support from us.
By simply grabbing the handle, you cut all motor power and engage manual mode. This implies that you can drag the luggage at your wish. When Ovis is switched to manual mode, all four wheels become omnidirectional, allowing a smooth roll on the ground and a buttery smooth luggage drag.
Fear of losing your luggage at the airport? Ovis get you covered. The constant GPS tracking module ensures that you will never lose track of your luggage again. Equipped with GPS and 3G technology, and presented as an individual, cut-resistant, modularized luggage tag, the location tracker of Ovis provides you with real-time monitoring and tracking of your belongings - anytime & anywhere.
*If you wish to purchase the GPS location tracker, please select the bundle perk which includes one Ovis and one GPS location tracker.
*We respect our user’s privacy. The information collected will only be kept locally on Ovis so that you can track your Ovis. However, the GPS info will not be uploaded to our server without your consent.
Make it simple! With the customized Ovis App, you’ll be able to track your Ovis, measure the weight of your belongings, monitor your Ovis’ battery life, all with just one click.
When you purchase Ovis by ForwardX, you get a product that’s constantly evolving with new and innovative features that enhance and excite the user experience, all through regular firmware updates.
- What is Ovis' Computer Vision Technology? -
Ovis’ Computer Vision technology is based on machine learning algorithms, allowing the computer to gain high-level understanding from digital images or videos, so that the computer can “see” as what the human's visual system can do. We have achieved the significant breakthrough in the following sub-domains:
- Facial Recognition: 99.1% precision on LFW in face recognition
- Pose Estimation: rank 1st in the AI Pose Challenger Bi-weekly Match One
- Multiple Object Tracking: 93% recall with a 2M model in multiple object detection
- Re-identification: 94.4% precision of Re-identification on market-1501
- Ovis Has Self-Driving Technology Embedded -
Ovis is capable of sensing its environment and navigating without human input. Combining Computer Vision, Ovis’ advanced control system interpret camera and other sensory information to identify appropriate navigation paths when encounter obstacles.
- Object Avoidance & Following: algorithm is based on deep reinforcement learning method, with a deviation precision of +/- 1cm.
- Visual Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (V-SLAM): adopting 3D reconstruction techniques for building as well as visual matching and loop closure techniques for precise self-localization
