rc_randomdot Pattern Projector

Add the rc_randomdot Pattern Projector to Increase Scene Density


Give Difficult Scenes More Structure with the rc_randomdot Pattern Projector

The rc_randomdot Pattern Projector is a specially tailored projector that can be used as an extension to the rc_visard when the perception of particularly difficult scenes with little or no natural texture is required.
  • Tailored white LED projector provides random dot pattern
  • Enhances depth measurements when scene texture is low
  • Can be mounted over the workspace or directly onto a static-mounted sensor
  • Suitable for use with any rc_visard (monochrome and color) or rc_visard NG
  • Fully integrated component of the rc_viscore

This random dot projector can be combined with any rc_visard, monochrome or color. It contains a special driver to ensure compatibility with the sensors. The scope of delivery includes the required C-mount lens and a short cable for its connection as well as a mounting bracket to attach the projector directly to the rc_visard.

Used in conjunction with the corresponding IOControl module (included with the rc_visard) and any optional picking module from the rc_reason software suite, the projector is particularly useful for pick applications with difficult objects or workspaces. 

Users of the rc_viscore 3D stereo sensor benefit from the fact that the projector is a compnent of the sensor, and hence fully integrated into the sensor’s housing.
