The recognition of objects using camera-based 2D image recording is a basic application of rbc robotics. Intelligent and reliable pick-and-place applications are only possible if the position and rotation of the components is recognized and automatically processed by the program.
Unlike the standard 2D application, this system also recognizes the component or container height, which makes the application much more flexible.
2.5D recognition x, y, z and rotation around Rz
The challenge: Gripping components off a flat surface. Components or containers with variable height.
The 2.5D camera technology from rbc robotics is able to safely and reliably detect the position of components, whether they are removed right off a conveyor belt or from a tray.
Similar to the 2D application, in addition to the evaluation of displacement and rotation, properties such as type numbers or other numerical component information that has been marked by means of an embossing device or laser can be read out and processed.
The cameras are installed stationary above the component or on the robot hand, depending on the application requirements. Tried and tested components from leading manufacturers are used.
If it is a smart camera, the evaluation takes place directly in the camera or in a separate PC. Depending on the use case, we can plan the optimal application for you.
This 2.5D technology has already been used in more than 300 projects for a wide variety of tasks. The analysis is carried out according to pre-defined parameters. This enables the robot to precisely grip the components and place them in the stacking position.
