Vision Software Supports Smart Cameras from Sony
Tordivel has released a new product to support all smart cameras from Sony. Scorpion 3D SmartCam is a fully integrated and compact solution ideal for machine builders and OEMs.
The fully integrated machine vision solution consists of a smart camera from Sony and Scorpion Vision Software with the latest 3D Vision algorithms. Optional GigE camera from Sony can be added to implement true stereo vision or SmartCam multicamera solutions. The 3D SmartCamera is a natural advance when 2D processing is insufficient to solve the machine vision challenge.
Benefits in 3D Machine Vision
The benefits in 3D machine vision are:
- Works in physical coordinates (can verify against CAD drawings)
- Object location does not degrade when the object position changes
- It is possible to detect that something is wrong, in 2D machine vision there is normally no quality measurement
- The systems are more accurate
- The system will never fail
‘‘Scorpion Vision Software is a powerful framework where the user can process 2D and 3D images from our cameras without programming'‘, says Thor Vollset, CEO of Tordivel. ‘‘With Scorpion 3D SmartCam, the user can choose to do MonoPose3D or standard stereo vision. The 3D reference systems in Scorpion make it easy to do 3D with 2D image processing algorithms. The object is located in space and the 3D reference is passed to the 2D tools performing sub-pixel measurements in space. The 3D points and features can be converted to true 3D Point Clouds or 3D Images that are visualized and efficiently processed. We believe this is a unique offering in 3D machine vision."
