Automate bin picking with 3D vision
The Omron TM collaborative robot, when equipped with the new 3D vision camera, is able to pick up known objects with random overlapping positions out of a bin. Traditionally, this was difficult to automate due to varying weights, shapes and orientations of objects that require 3D location and different forces during picking. The 3D camera locates objects and sends their coordinates to the robot, while the software makes the advanced calculations required for optimized trajectory and force to pick up objects. The LD mobile robot then transports the sorted goods.
