What’s possible with Zivid 3D cameras

Singulate and pick at speed

Zivid 3D cameras are fast, accurate, and durable, making it possible for robots to pick and place reliably at the speeds necessary in eCommerce. Superb point cloud density and detail, in color, at capture speeds of 100-500ms, mean the machine vision doesn’t impact robot speed, making cycle times of 5 secs per pick easily possible

All of our industrial cameras are designed, calibrated, and tested to work tirelessly for years in varying conditions and temperatures without failing or drifting – keeping the point cloud true to reality, the pick pose accurate, and the object safe.

Pick and place automation guide

Identify millions of SKUs with 3D clarity 

Get low-noise 3D data on any presented surface to determine objects successfully and pick poses for your robot. High Dynamic Range (HDR) of up to 130 dB coupled with sophisticated structured light technology and smart filters deliver quality results no matter the object. 

Zivid 3D technology is designed to provide high-quality point clouds of varied, random, and challenging scenes in a single shot. From shiny metallics and black plastics to polybags and semi-transparent, Zivid delivers point clouds you can trust.

Color 2D and 3D data for every point 

Provide your pick and place algorithms with all the data it needs. Zivid 3D cameras produce high-fidelity 2D images that correspond directly to the point cloud. Feed the Zivid 2D images to your segmentation algorithm and extract the points of interest directly in 3D. No need to buy an additional industrial 2D camera. No need to calibrate the color image and 3D data together. Simple.
