3D Vision Technologies for Warehouse Robots

3D Vision Technologies for Warehouse Robots

Stephen Se, Senior Engineering Manager, Teledyne FLIR - Machine Vision

Depth perception is required by a number of warehouse robotic applications, including autonomous navigation, pick and place, palletizing, and package optimization. The most common methods to achieve depth perception are stereo, time-of-flight, and lidar.  Choosing which method to apply depends on factors such as range, accuracy, ruggedness, cost, and weight.  In this talk, we will compare the various 3D vision technologies and discuss their trade-offs pertaining to these applications.  We will also provide instructions on how to build a compact and affordable embedded 3D vision system using off-the-shelf components and open-source software.
