The rc_visard NG Vision Platform Makes Your Robot Vision Application Smarter than Ever

The flexible vision platform rc_visard NG opens up new possibilities for robotics integrators and end users to take full advantage of image processing solutions in their automation endeavors. The smart 3D stereo sensor allows the easy integration of proven software solutions with application-specific additions. This ‘next generation’ of the rc_visard is powered by today’s most advanced embedded AI solution, the NVIDIA® Jetson Orin™ series.

Plug-and-Produce Machine Vision

rc_visard NG users do not need any expertise or prior experience in machine vision: Thanks to its user-friendly web interface, the rc_visard NG can be used intuitively and the installation effort is reduced to a minimum.

The rc_visard NG can also be connected and configured via Rest-API, ROS, OPC UA and GenICam.

Flexibility through Modularity

Platforms for robot vision are based on modular concepts, building blocks and platform technologies to provide users with better integration processes and ultimately more stable and flexible solutions. Based on the three levels of (1) hardware, (2) vendor software and (3) customer-specific software, users can design tailored vision solutions for functional applications.

As a highly flexible robot vision platform, the rc_visard NG is the first to unite all three levels on one sensor. Without additional hardware or external computing power, the rc_visard NG delivers powerful robot vision right on the edge in one single device.

All rc_reason Modules on the rc_visard NG Vision Platform

The rc_reason suite of software modules is an advanced AppliedAI solution designed for robotic applications:

Users select the plug-and-produce software module that best fits their individual needs, and with just a few mouse clicks, the rc_visard NG provides task-relevant information such as grasp points. Any additional software elements can be included via the platform’s UserSpace.

True Flexibility: UserSpace on Board of the rc_visard NG Vision Platform

The UserSpace feature allows users to deploy custom software directly on Roboception’s hardware through Docker containers. The UserSpace is particularly useful for collision-free motion planning, Industry 4.0 applications, vision pipelines, or application programs – all while preventing users from having to purchase additional hardware to run those individual software tools.

REST-API and gRPC interfaces can also be used within the UserSpace to obtain grasp points and image data, giving access to all activated rc_reason modules and connected sensors.

    Technical Specifications of the rc_visard NG Vision Platform

    rc_visard NG Vision Platform
    The rc_visard NG combines the powerful rc_reason software suite with the UserSpace, which allows users to install their own software in Docker containers – directly on the sensor. The intelligent vision platform is based on the powerful NVIDIA® Jetson Orin™ series, the most advanced embedded AI solution on the market for vision in robotics.
