- Why ZIVID
Robot-mounted allows the Zivid Two 3D camera to operate at its optimal distance for every capture, even as you empty a bin. Object detection algorithms will always process the highest quality 3D data, with a consistent resolution, color representation, accuracy, and noise performance.
By elevating the robot's flexibility with a robot-mounted Zivid Two 3D camera, you enable the system to view the scene and objects from multiple angles and positions, avoiding blind spots, occlusion, and point cloud artifacts (e.g. from reflections and highlights). Robot-mounted 3D is the efficient way to reduce system cost and the number of sensors needed to empty bins successfully.
A robot-mounted machine vision camera can always see whatever the robot arm can reach. This fact makes robot-mounted 3D solutions ideal for any applications like inspection, bin picking, piece picking, assembly, machine tending, robot guidance, or material handling. It also adds flexibility to mobile manipulator configurations.
Weighing <1000 g and with a small footprint, Zivid Two provides HD point clouds without interfering with payload or maneuverability.
For large scanning areas and collaborative robot cells that serve multiple locations, robot-mounted 3D vision minimizes the total cost of ownership (TCO). Utilizing one camera in multiple workspaces reduces the number of components that need to be installed, calibrated, maintained, and repaired.
The Zivid SDK and calibration board enable automatic and trouble-free in-field camera correction and 3D hand-eye calibration.
All robot vision systems are affected by environmental impacts like vibration, shock, and temperature changes. It is an under-communicated topic among vendors in the machine vision industry. A key design consideration for us was to address these factors and meet the requirements for robot mounting.
Therefore, the Zivid Two 3D camera is engineered and built from the ground up to excel under the harshest working conditions. All component in the robot vision system has been scrutinized, examined, and validated for stability and performance during years of development and design. Every robot vision camera is then individually hardened and temperature calibrated, tested, and verified as part of the production process.
