Motoman Robotics announces MotoSight 3D Spatial Vision
March 21, 2011 - MotoSight 3D Spatial Vision, a 3D vision system, delivers cost-effective, flexible and scalable real-time 3D vision guidance for Motoman robots. It is ideally suited to enhance part picking, box moving and automated kitting.
Easier to set up than traditional 3D systems, MotoSight 3D features an alignment wizard that walks the user through a simple process of calibrating the cameras and robot, and then loading standard CAD files of parts the system should track. The calibration files can interface to C, C++ or MATLAB robotic real-time control programs.
MotoSight 3D Spatial Vision uses world-class pattern matching to determine true 3D for six degrees (X, Y, Z, Rx, Ry, Rz) of position and pose information. It offers guided intrinsic (camera/camera) and extrinsic (camera/robot) calibration.
MotoSight 3D Spatial Vision provides 2-4 mm accuracy at typical robot working distance using off-the-shelf Logitech 9000 webcams. GigE cameras can be used to improve accuracy. MotoSight 3D Spatial Vision’s accuracy is achieved through advanced vision processing of raw images for image rectification, Laplacian of Gaussian and dense stereopsis for full-frame depth maps.
