Roboception’s rc_visard wins a Red Dot Award: Product Design 2019

Roboception, together with industrial designer Tilo Wuesthoff, has won an award in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2019. Our rc_visard received the Red Dot, which the renowned jury only awards to products that feature an outstanding design. “I would like to congratulate the laureates sincerely on their wonderful success. The fact that their products were able to satisfy the strict criteria of the jury bears testimony to their award-winning design quality. The laureates are thus setting key trends in the design industry and are showing where future directions may lead,” said Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of Red Dot, in reference to the winners. At Roboception, we are very proud that (after the iF DESIGN AWARD in 2018) yet another jury was convinced of the outstanding design quality of our sensor. From the very beginning, it has been one of our goals to not only optimize our sensors in terms of functionality, but to make them visually attractive as well. In the end, they are typically mounted to our customer’s robots in very prominent positions. The Red Dot Award: Product Design is one of the world’s largest design competitions. In 2019, designers and manufacturers from 55 countries entered more than 5,500 products in the competition. The international jury comprises experienced experts from different disciplines and has been convening for more than 60 ...

rc_reason BoxPick Module: Pick-and-Place Rectangular Items

Roboception has just released the rc_reason BoxPick Module, which provides a solution for robotic pick-and-place applications such as de-/palletizing and sorting of packets. Equipped with the BoxPick Module, the rc_visard detects rectangular surfaces over pre-defined size ranges and optionally computes potential grasp points. It allows the detection of the position, the orientation and the size of the objects and enables the robot to place the objects in a defined position. The BoxPick Module enables robots to pick unsorted and unordered packets out of a bin and palletize these items in a defined, oriented way. It can also be used for de-palletizing packets to a conveyor belt, e.g. for cross-belt sorters. Read more...

Roboception at Hannover Fair 2019

At this year’s Hannover Fair, Roboception is part of the Application Park in Hall 17. The open design of the park, without any dividing walls, makes the joint booth a real crowd-puller. Get convinced by mobile robots and autonomous systems and don’t miss stopping by our booth: Hall 17, E42/18). Enjoy a live pick-and-place application, see how RandomDot Projector optimizes even difficult scenes, pick up an apple - and try our rc_visard hands-on yourself. You will also find our rc_visard “live in action” on the booths of our partners Schunk (Hall 17, B40), where the rc_visard works coupled with a mechanical gripper in a bin-picking demo, and Ruhrbotics (Hall 16, A10), where you will see that our products link up flawlessly with a UR as well. Get in touch to pre-arrange your meeting with us, and we will gladly provide you a complimentary e-ticket. Our team looks forward to welcoming you at one of our demos.

NEW: rc_visard Even Better – with StereoPlus

With the Image Version 1.5, we improve our basic software with a new feature: The StereoPlus Module delivers full resolution depth images and advanced smoothing for optimized depth data. The new Image 1.5 not only includes some minor bug fixes and efficiency improvements, but also the StereoPlus Module. This comprises two new features: 'Smoothing' and 'Full Resolution'. When activated, the SMOOTHING setting evens out the surfaces in the depth image of a given scene without removing scene details, hence improving the data quality significantly. When selecting FULL among the resolution settings, the depth image will be computed in the full camera resolution. This setting is particularly useful when the sensor is used in combination with the RandomDot Projector, as it maximizes the scene density. The improved rc_visard is now available in our WebShop.
