A technology development team at RTS, which has been involved in robot application advances for nearly 20 years, has collaborated with Sick UK to use 3D vision
technology using a laser-based triangulation technique to capture the profile and shape of the product as it enters the robotic cell.
* SC3D[TM]-single-camera 3D vision
(Sunny Vale, CA; www.canesta.com) think they have a solution to that problem, a 3D vision
chip that can both identify objects and determine their range; one that will perform the functions of more expensive sensors, but add the additional functionality of being able to determine the closing rate of an object in its view.
A pioneer in the 3D software market since 1981, Dassault Systemes develops and markets PLM application software and services that support industrial processes and provide a 3D vision
of the entire life cycle of products from conception to maintenance.
According to Allan Anderson, managing director of Clearview Imaging and chairman of the UK Industrial Vision Association, many UKIVA members are currently involved in bin picking applications using 3D vision
The study, published in Scientific Reports, used computer tests to analyse the 3D vision
of 13 professional dressmakers and 21 non-dressmakers.
It plays a critical role in applications such as 3D vision
, AR/VR, robotics like drones and autonomous driving.
(NASDAQ: CGNX) has expanded its 3D vision
capabilities with the recent acquisition of two companies specialising in 3D machine vision technology, the company said.
We definitively demonstrated 3D vision
or stereopsis in mantises and also showed that this technique can be effectively used to deliver virtual 3D stimuli to insects." The Newcastle team will now continue the research examining the algorithms used for depth perception in insects to better understand how human vision evolved and to develop new ways of adding 3D technology to computers and robots.
The work has been funded by a PS1m research leadership award from the Leverhulme Trust, with one hope being that it may reveal that mantisehave independently evolved similar 3D vision
capabilities tbony animals.
It is supported by 3D vision
to display 3D contents in any computer powered by an NVIDIA chip, such as games, apps, videos, photos, 3DVisionLive.com and Blu-ray 3D.
