What characteristics do 3D vision systems need to be considered industrial-grade. Photoneo explains several factors for robotics developers to consider.
LUCID launches Helios Flex time-of-flight module for 3D object detection
LUCID Vision Labs, which develops industrial vision cameras, today announced the series production of its new Helios Flex 3D time-of-flight module. The module can be integrated into embedded platforms for industrial and robotics applications. The pre-calibrated time-of-flight MIPI module features Sony’s DepthSense IMX556PLR back-illuminated ToF image sensor, and includes four 850nm VCSEL laser diodes, LUCID…
Cornell’s ‘pseudo-lidar’ advances vision-based, 3D object recognition for autonomous driving
Cornell University researchers have developed a way of using low-cost, stereo cameras to allow self-driving cars to detect 3D objects with a range and accuracy approaching that of lidar.
3D for Better Control
If you can’t describe it you can’t control it. And control is what its all about. So we need to get better at describing what it is that our control system projects are going to do. This has some serious implications. First, if the programming language is not well suited to the task this will […]
Universal Robotics Lauches 3D Software Compatible With Webcams
Universal Robotics, Inc., a software engineering company, announced the launch of two simple-to-use 3D vision software products: Spatial Vision and Spatial Vision Robotics. The products can turn any pair of webcams into a highly accurate, cost-efficient 3D vision system that can be employed in virtually any setting without expensive equipment. With Spatial Vision and Spatial […]
