A new model series of stereo cameras with coordinated application software complements Basler’s 3D product range for vision-guided robotics for applications in factory automation and logistics.
Ahrensburg, February 24, 2022 – Basler AG continues to expand its 3D imaging offering and adds an industrial-grade stereo camera series to its product portfolio. Robots equipped with Basler Stereo Cameras can perceive their surroundings in real time. The five model variants are available in basic distances of 65 millimeters and 160 millimeters, each in monochrome and color versions. All cameras are equipped with a pre-installed, modular onboard software package suitable for typical robotics applications such as object recognition or bin picking.
The idea behind the Basler Stereo Camera family is based on a plug-and-play computer vision solution that requires neither experience nor expertise in machine vision. Thanks to onboard processing, the cameras can be integrated directly – without an external computer. The software package already installed on the camera contains six modules that are adapted to different robotics applications and can be individually selected.
For this expansion of its 3D product portfolio, Basler is working closely with Munich-based Roboception GmbH, a specialist for hardware and software products in the field of 3D sensor technology. Sebastian von Holdt, Head of Product Management 3D Image Acquisition at Basler, is pleased about the successful partnership for both companies: “The expansion of Basler’s 3D Vision portfolio is an important step to support our customers and a necessary response to the many challenges in the robot-based automation of their processes. The close cooperation with our partner Roboception enables our customers to deploy intelligent stereo solutions that stand out due to their unique user-friendliness, making the implementation of vision-guided robotic applications possible for a wide range of customers.”
