Zivid Two—See More. Do More.

Zivid is a Norwegian machine vision technology company that designs and sells 3D-color cameras with vision software that are used in autonomous industrial robot cells, collaborative robot cells and other industrial automation systems. Zivid Two, a 3D industrial color camera supported by companion software products such as the Zivid Software Development Kit (SDK) and the Zivid Studio, a graphical user interface (GUI), is one of the company’s primary hardware products. And what a wonder this camera is!

Zivid Two applications

Zivid Two brings human-like vision to your collaborative robotics and industrial automation systems. That’s quite a claim, but it‘s true. And in so doing it greatly helps customers ramp up efficiency and productivity in a range of applications, including:

  • De-palletizing
  • Bin-picking
  • Pick-and-place
  • Assembly
  • Packaging
  • Quality control

With capabilities like this, Zivid 3D machine vision is giving rise to the smarter factories and warehouses of Industry 4.0, which are now rising before our eyes.

Robotics

On many fronts, the future of technological advancement clearly rests with robotics. The automation of anything that can be automated is becoming the holy grail of all major robotics companies. While there have been some extraordinary advances in robotics in recent years, it’s not easy to create machinery capable of performing many basic tasks, which is where Zivid has stepped in with the Zivid Two.

Most robots need cameras to use as their vision input, and with the rapid growth in pick-and-place robotics, the Zivid Two is poised to be a key part of this process. It is a compact high-performance 3D-color camera made primarily for machine-tending applications. The camera has super-high 3D precision and advanced artifact suppression to help reduce image noise.

Machine learning for precision

The Zivid Two has a high-capture speed to make it as precise as it can possibly be in everything it does. This greatly improves the camera’s performance and eliminates constraints that restrict most cameras from working in robotics. It also has a deep-learning AI and object-detection algorithms to improve the accuracy of grabbing and placing objects.

The Zivid Two has lightning fast 3D-image acquisition and capture time, making it much better than conventional 3D scanners used in most pick-and-place robotics. It also has a very flexible working window with a distance of 300mm to 1500mm and a field of view of 57 degrees and 35 degrees on the horizontal and vertical axes, respectively. These make the camera perfect for a wide range of on-arm stationary-mounted robot-guided applications. On top of this, weighing in at 880 grams, the Zivid Two is a lightweight, minimizing its impact on the robot’s maneuverability.

The unique combination of native color and high dynamic range enables imaging of a broad range of objects, including those that are:

  • Plastic
  • Ceramic
  • Metal
  • Cardboard
  • Wood
  • Colored
  • Textured
  • Light
  • Dark
  • Absorptive

The Zivid Two can work with single or mixed SKU bin scenarios, densely stacked or randomly arranged

Built tough

The Zivid Two gets used in some rugged industrial environments—but it stands up extremely well to the hard going. It comes in a magnesium housing and is dust and water-resistant, which greatly contributes to its durability. The Zivid Two can also withstand temperatures ranging from 0°C to 45°C and 15 G impacts.
