Meet Canvas, an ultra-portable improved location mapping and productivity solution created through Fellow’s computer vision and machine learning expertise


Fellow Canvas is a mapping and auditing platform that is manually transported by an operator to collect a highly accurate 3D map of the interior of a building such as a retailer, hospital, office complex or warehouse. Fellow Canvas utilizes state of the art precise mapping technology, sophisticated data analysis, machine learning, and rendering of precise interior layouts. This 3D blueprint is an as-built, precise display of the interior area scanned, which is reformatted as a 2D line annotated drawing that can be devised to best manage your many business locations as "as-built" configurations.

Canvas Specifications

Canvas Advantage

  • 50% time savings over a manual measurement
  • data entry for customized floor plan generation
  • No need for entry of measurements - the software generates highly accurate renditions
  • a gateway for the use of Fellow Robots Navii for inventory price and out of stock audits and planogram creation in retail settings or traceability offerings in warehouses
  • to record notes via both keyboard or voice headset during walk process
  • to scan the location for more captured details like products on a section of shelving in a supermarket, or an alarm panel location

    Canvas Provides

    Our portable mapping device is easy to transport between locations and provides:

    • Easy to maneuver and safe to use for the operator who will not tire from holding a handheld device and carrying other collection tools
    • iPad driven data collection and integration to location barcode scanning for data collection
    • Advanced computer vision generated three d mapping
    • Onboard computer for on location processing of information and staging of data from the transmission to the cloud
    • Network connectivity options for Wi-Fi or direct connect

    Software Capabilities


    3D Precise Representations

    Fellow technology and software solutions produce an accurate mapping of exact item locations, racks, loading docks, doors, and conveyors. This 3D blueprint is an as-built, precise display of the warehouse interior in its entirety. Businesses are able to optimize the efficiency of the process of capturing detailed mappings of locations and showing all of the items and fixtures at each location.


    2D As-Built Drawings

    3D maps become 2D red-line or as-built drawings. These drawing documents allow a compare and contrast to provide insight through a detailed blueprint. These include modifications, field changes, shop drawing changes, design changes, and extra works, showing you an exact layout of each location with multi-layer capability for electrical, plumbing, networking, and other individual layers.


    Accurate Annotation

     Fellow Canvas includes innovative ways to map your facilities in detail and add predefined templated items. The process allows you the capacity for more customer productivity and many different layers of details.  Customized measurements are a snap and the ability to also collect information while on site like the category of items assigned to each location makes data entry both efficient and easy to use.
