rc_visard 3D camera
Innovative, powerful and smart: our new 3D camera
Low system costs, fast implementation and a high degree of flexibility in the application: this is what the rc_visard product family of intelligent 3D cameras promises. With an integrated processor and application-specific software modules on the camera, the rc_visard offers stand-alone 3D image processing and can be used very easily as a 3D stereo sensor. Processed 3D information such as pick points are directly forwarded by the rc_visard to the robot application.
3D camera and 3D vision sensor in one
The 3D camera rc_visard is easy to use and offers high flexibility in application. With on-board processing capabilities, the rc_visard can be integrated directly into any robotic application, generally without needing an external computer. It enables robots to generate and process time- and location-based data in real time.
Software modules for specific applications
An on-board software package makes it very easy to use the rc_visard as a 3D vision sensor. The optional rc_reason software suite provides additional intelligent tools for specific tasks. Also, the integrated GigE Vision interface supports connecting to a PC, which offers the flexibility of a 3D camera. Camera data can be further processed and stand-alone 3D applications can be created.
With the help of Ego-Motion, the rc_visard determines its own position and orients itself with millimeter precision and very low latency. Precise ego-motion data is reliably generated even in the presence of vibrations. An intuitive web interface allows easy setup and configuration. Multiple rc_visard cameras can also easily operate in the same workspace.
The camera models capture up to 1.2 million 3D data points and achieve frame rates of up to 25 Hz, depending on the resolution. Various robot interfaces are already integrated for communication between robot and camera.
