RandomDot Projector

The RandomDot Projector 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 perception results 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 RandomDot Projector increases the scene density and hence improves the quality of stereo matching when the natural scene texture is insufficient.

The 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 the Y-cable required for its connection, as well as a mounting plate that can be used to attach the projector directly onto the rc_visard.

The projector is particularly useful for pick applications in difficult objects or workspaces when coupled with the corresponding IOControl Module and the rc_reason ItemPick Module.
