Bossa Nova


Bossa Nova was formed in February 2005 as a spin-off from Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute to deliver advanced, robotic technology for seamless retail operations. In June 2018, we acquired the artificial intelligence company, HawXeye to further advance our AI capabilities within the retail environment which resulted in precise product recognition at large scale, highly accurate identification of out-of-stock and misplaced products. With the addition of HawXeye and CMU’s technical expertise, leadership, and research, Bossa Nova gains exclusive licenses to more than 52 core IP properties in deep learning, correlation filters, 3D modelling, and additional product recognition technologies.
