Piece picking with Z2 plus M130

Order Picking 

Robotic piece picking is the process of automated order picking, by picking various individual items (SKUs) from an inventory bin and place them in an order container for shipping to customers. The choice of the vision system, particularly the 3D camera, impacts the robot’s ability to successfully detect, pick, and place all types of pieces. Learn how to increase SKU coverage using your Zivid 2+ M130 machine vision camera - without compromising on speed.



Zivid 2+ delivers unified 3D and 2D imaging in 5 MPx with minimal occlusion and excellent artifact suppression, even for transparent and shiny objects. This will significantly improve object recognition and increasing the number of detectable SKUs your system can handle.



Zivid 2+ enables more reliable detection of object boundaries for grasp planning, and a true-to-reality representation of object size, rotation, and absolute position in relation to the robot coordinate system. Essential for accurate picking, avoiding mispicks and crashes.



Zivid 2+ brings  groundbreaking trueness and  enables more demanding place operations. With confidence in the size, dimension, and orientation of your picked object you can place with high accuracy into tight places, with no collision  or damage to the surroundings

Challenges & Solutions

Order picking is still a challenge for robots. The detection and picking of unknown SKUs of various shapes, sizes and materials is still one of the biggest problems in logistics. Unpickable objects go under many terms, such as “uglies” or “pathologicals”, and the difficulty stems from the inherent uncertainty in physics, perception, and control.

See tiny and detailed objects, densely stacked, or randomly arranged.

Zivid 2+ provides high-resolution and precision point clouds with minimal occlusion, capturing shapes and sizes with all the fine details.

  • Distinguish features smaller than 5mm for reliable object recognition and separation of boundaries for picking
  • Very small, thin, porous, deformable, or highly irregular objects. Densely stacked with little gaps or randomly arranged and piled on top of each other
  • Low occlusion with almost no shadowing contrary to bigger baseline cameras that can potentially miss smaller objects hidden by shadows in the bin, e.g. close to corners and edges

The unique combination of native color and high dynamic range enables imaging of a broad range of SKUs.

  • Plastic, ceramic, metal, cardboard, wood, colored, textured, light, dark, and absorptive single or mixed SKU bin scenarios
  • Eye-safe non-laser-based white light for broad material coverage and native color capabilities
  • Unified 2D and 3D data from the same sensor in 5 MPx
  • Capture speeds < 500 ms for high dynamic range scenes, covering transparent items to shiny and dark absorptive
