Motoman Robotics has released two three-dimensional recognition vision functionalities that will prove useful for its industrial robot installations. MotoSight 3D Spatial Vision can be used for a wide range of applications such as automated kitting, box moving, and part picking.
This 3D vision guidance system is adaptable and upgradeable package that functions in real time. The system is easy to install and provides an alignment wizard that directs users through calibration of the robot and cameras. It then enables tracking of loading typical CAD files of parts.
MotoSight 3D Spatial Vision utilizes pattern matching to evaluate true three dimension for six degrees of pose and position data and also enables guided intrinsic and extrinsic calibration. With the help of off-the-shelf Logitech 9000 webcams, it delivers an accuracy of 2-4 mm at normal working distance of robots.
The second product introduced by Motoman Robotics is MotoSight 3D CortexVision. This system enables the use of 3D vision in applications that require robotic guidance such as welding, product sorting, and machine loading. MotoSight 3D CortexVision can observe many objects within the camera’s field of view and identify those objects irrespective of presentation. The vision process can recognize the part placed in the camera’s front. It can also identify very complex parts, irrespective of the part’s location, and place it precisely.
