New 3-D vision solution for box handling applications
October 19, 2011
MotoSight 3D Spatial Vision, an innovative 3-D vision system, delivers cost-effective, flexible and scalable real-time 3-D vision guidance for Motoman robots. It is ideally suited for box moving and depalletizing applications, as introduced at Pack Expo Las Vegas this year.
Used in box moving applications, MotoSight 3D Spatial Vision locates randomly positioned boxes ranging in size from six to 24 inches at rates up to 12 boxes per minute. Using Logitech 9000 webcams and a Microsoft Kinect structured light sensor, the system locates boxes on pallets up to 48” square and as high as 60 inches. GigE cameras, improved optics, and more advanced structured light sensors can be used when higher accuracy is needed.
“MotoSight 3D Spatial Vision for box moving and depalletizing applications has the potential to revolutionize how companies perform material handling operations in these areas,” says Roger Christian, Vice President Marketing and Development at Motoman Robotics. “Powered by Universal Robotics’ Spatial Vision Robotics software, we now offer 3-D vision guidance solutions at 2-D vision prices.”
