Machine Vision is one of the driving forces of industrial automation. For a long time, it’s been primarily pushed forward by improvements made in 2D image sensing and, for some applications, 2D sensing is still an optimal tool to solve a problem. But the majority of challenges machine vision is facing today has a 3D character. From well-established metrology up to new applications in smart robotics, 3D sensors serve as a main source of data. Here, we discuss the parameters of 3D sensing techniques.

3D imaging technology plays a powerful role in industrial applications. Depending on the application requirements, such as distance to target, level of accuracy and precision, environmental lighting, and overall costs, different 3D technologies will bring different advantages. For applications that demand real-time object detection, time of flight (ToF) technology enhances 3D depth performance and simplifies application complexity over traditional stereo vision camera systems.
