While the rc_visards with their on-board software are perfectly suitable for most robotic operations, some applications require a maximized performance and/ or minimized latency. The rc_cube S edge computer delivers this additional work power:
It supports all rc_visard/ rc_reason modules with the exception of dynamic applications (i.e. navigation) and enables e.g. running the stereo matching processes with 25 Hz. (12.5 Hz. for full-resolution stereo). The latency of the ItemPick and BoxPick Modules is reduced to only 250-450 milliseconds.
The rc_cube S edge computer can be combined with any rc_visard, monochrome and color. It offers the same user experience (identical user and programming interface) as the rc_visard, and is simply plugged in between the sensor and the application. No adjustments within the application are required.
Like the rc_visard itself, installation, maintenance and updates are easy to do. Note that the rc_cube S comes with 24 months of software updates, after that, software updates are available at € 950 per year (from year 3).
The rc_cube S is suitable for research, development and testing environments. It supports one sensor without additional hardware. A separate 2.5G switch (not part of the product scope) enables the support of two rc_visards at a time. For operational use in an industrial environment, or to support up to four sensors, please make sure to use an rc_cube I.
Please note that an rc_cube is a mandatory accessory for the rc_reason CADMatch Module.
