Vision Technology – Software Module for Picking Robots

Various software modules are used for automatic palletizing and depalletizing.

Vision technology is a software module for 3D object recognition for picking robots. Proper object recognition is the basic requirement for the exact access to goods and items by the robot’s gripper.

The software “learns” the different sizes and dimensions by scanning the items. The intelligence of the software is thus a lever to increase picking performance and at the same time protects the goods from damage caused by incorrect picking by the gripper.

The software’s integrated 3D image processing monitors the recognition processes at all times and displays them clearly on monitors at the picking location or control center.

Vision technology compares the results of the scanned image data with stored item master data to detect deviations. 

Several integrated 3D cameras control the picking robot and record the flow of goods.
