With the innovative and modular software rc_reason, image data interpretation becomes easy. Together with the rc_visard, the software draws from its full potential, but it is also compatible with other sensors. Software modules can be distributed to different computing resources and are configured via the intuitive operating concept of the rc_visards API and WebGui.
SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) allows rc_visard to create a map of its environment, while simultaneously estimating its current location. This is an important part of the GPS-free navigation on unknown terrain. The SLAM module runs onboard the rc_visard, no external hardware is required.
The TagDetect component enables a robust out-of-the-box detection of QR codes and AprilTags. In addition, it calculates the 3D position and orientation of each tag relative to the sensor. It can be used e.g. for localizing the sensor or for the identification and localization of objects. Its detection time of less than 1s enables highly efficient applications.
Objects can be identified and manipulated through our advanced algorithms. The exact distance to the object is determined from the depth data provided by rc_visard. As a result, novel application fields can be addressed in all domains of robotics.
Object data, such as geometry, features and associated handles, is stored in an object data database. All modules of rc_reason have access to this data base so that modules do not need to store object data themselves. The database can be updated and extended by the customer at any time.
