Basler ToF Cameras in Logistics, Robotics and Medicine – Typical 3D Applications

Basler ToF Cameras

3D technology is being used in a growing range of fields. There are a variety of methods for obtaining three-dimensional data about objects and scenes. One of these technologies is known as Time-of-Flight, or ToF. ToF Cameras offer benefits in many different fields, including logistics, robotics and medicine. The

individual applications range from palleting tasks and automated guided vehicles to patient positioning. Our White Paper provides a brief introduction to ToF technology, explores how it differs from other 3D technologies and explains how ToF can enrich individual applications.

There are different of methods for obtaining three-dimensional data about objects and scenes, including one technology known as Time-of-Flight, or ToF. Our White Paper explores the applications in which it can be used and how it works.

The White Paper on “Applications for Time-of-Flight Cameras in Logistics, Robotics and Medicine” answers the following questions, among others:

  • How precisely does the Time-of-Flight method work?
  • What are the differences between the individual 3D technologies?
  • What benefits does ToF technology offer?
  • How can ToF Cameras be used in logistics, robotics and medicine?

Introduction to ToF Camera Technology

One major difference between 2D and 3D technologies is the type of gathered data. Both identify the visible X and Y values for the subject of the image, but the 3D technology also provides depth values for the recorded scene or object. This opens up a completely new range of opportunities for solving complex tasks — specially in the fields of logistics, robotics and factory automation as well as in the medical field.

The Time-of-Flight (ToF) process is a very efficient technology for generating depth data and measuring distances. A ToF Camera provides two kinds of information for each pixel: the intensity value (indicated as a gray value) and the distance between the object and sensor, known as the depth value.

Integrys New Product Announcement
Expanded Baumer CX Series of Industrial Cameras

Mississauga, ON July 6th, 2017  – Integrys is committed to bringing clients the newest in technological innovation and is constantly focused on providing the best service. We are thus excited to inform our clients about the further expanded Baumer CX Series of industrial cameras, which now includes the VCXU-123M, the smallest 12 megapixel global shutter CMOS camera.

Expanded Baumer CX Series of industrial camerasThe VCXU-123M, which measures just 29 x 29 x 38 mm and has a USB 3.0 interface, is ideal for applications with demanding requirements for high-definition quality in image acquisition at high throughput, such as surface inspection, 2D/3D measuring technology, packaging inspection, and traffic monitoring.

The VCXU-123M features the monochrome Sony Pregius IMX253 global shutter CMOS image sensor, a 12 megapixel sensor with a 3.45 µm pixel size that can achieve frame rates of 31 fps. The VCXU-123M also offers low dark noise and a 71 dB dynamic range, as well as an M3 mount, and 458 MB internal buffer.

The 29 x 29 x 38 mm dimensions of the camera with M3 mounting capabilities at each side of the square housing make installation easy with maximum flexibility, even in narrow installation environments. Camera events and the integrated image memory ensure synchronized process control for long-term stability in image evaluation. Thanks to the efficient thermal concept, the cameras endure up to 65 °C housing temperature for high application versatility at excellent image quality.

Matrox Design Assistant 5

Matrox logoMississauga, ON July 6th, 2017  – Integrys is committed to bringing clients the newest in technological innovation and is constantly focused on providing the best service. We are thus excited to inform our clients about Matrox Design Assistant 5, from Matrox Imaging. Matrox Design Assistant 5 brings vision application development to a whole new level, with enhanced functionality that improves the developer experience and makes design more intuitive and straightforward than ever. New Product Announcement Matrox Design Assistant 5

Matrox Design Assistant is an integrated development environment (IDE) where vision applications are created by constructing an intuitive flowchart instead of writing traditional program code. In addition to building a flowchart, the IDE enables users to directly design a graphical operator interface for the application. Since Design Assistant is hardware independent, you can choose any computer with GigE Vision® or USB3 Vision™ cameras and get the processing power you need.

Matrox Design Assistant 5 Highlights

Matrox Design Assistant 5 Highlights

  • Image-centric configuration lets measurements be set up directly on an image instead of through a configuration pane
  • QuickComm provides ready-to-go communication with a programmable logic/automation controller
  • Events & Actions put the management of specific events and actions into secondary flowcharts thus simplifying the main flowchart
  • Persistent Recipes enable the creation of a simpler flowchart with different settings for inspecting similar object types
  • HTML5-based Operator View provides access to the operator interface from any HTML-5 capable browser
  • SureDotOCR step enables the reading of dot-matrix text even when distorted, rotated and on irregular backgrounds
  • Support for the Matrox Iris GTR smart camera and Matrox Indio industrial I/O and communication card
