The rc_randomdot is a specifically tailored projector that can be used as an enhancement to the rc_visard when the perception of particularly difficult scenes with little or no natural texture is required.

  • Tailored white LED projector projects random dot pattern
  • Enhances depth measurements when scene texture is low
  • Can be mounted over scene or directly on sensor
  • Suitable for use with any rc_visard (monochrome and color)
SKU: hw.pr05 Categories: ,


While the rc_visards are perfectly suitable for reliably detecting and handling a large variety of objects, there are limitations when objects and workspaces have little or no texture. The rc_randomdot increases the scene density. It hence improves the quality of stereo matching when the natural scene texture is low.

This random dot projector can be combined with any rc_visard, monochrome and color. It contains a special driver ensuring 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 that can be used to attach the projector directly onto the rc_visard.

The projector is particularly useful for pick applications with difficult objects or workspaces, when coupled with the corresponding IOControl Module (included with the rc_visard) and the optional rc_reason ItemPick Module.
