Scorpion 3D Stinger for Robot Vision

Share this on social media:

Tordivel has released the automation software Scorpion 3D Stinger for Robot Vision, which is designed to solve robot part picking applications. The system identifies and locates any part in 3D and accurately locates the 3D coordinates in space.

To teach the system, the part's physical dimension is described in a simple text file. This is used by Scorpion 3D Stinger together with information from the camera images, to calculate the most accurate picking position in space.

The Scorpion 3D Stinger camera is compact and robust and designed to be used in advanced robot vision applications. The camera is available in a large number of configurations for 3D stereo vision, 3D scanner and 3D stereo laser applications. Features include one push 3D calibration and real-time 3D location and identification of moving objects.

Tordivel has developed a powerful platform for 3D pallet picking. There are ready to use solutions for cylinders, blocks and gears. All solutions are based on the Scorpion 3D Stinger camera and handles variants without any training. The different products are described by their physical dimensions.

The basis for the product is Scorpion Vision Software, developed by Tordivel. This is a generic software package for 2D and 3D machine vision. Scorpion has built-in modules for communication with all industrial robots and is easily adapted to any motion control unit. The product contains a large toolbox for 2D and 3D imaging and can easily be extended with new tools.

The Scorpion 3D Stinger for Robot Vision was developed in the AutoCast R&D project sponsored by the Norwegian Research Council and coordinated by Jøtul.

The Scorpion 3D Stinger technology can be used with any camera connected to a PC and is adaptable to provide the best 3D OEM application with a focus on cost and/or performance.
