Calling All Application Engineers:
VIM-201 SDK Plan
We're in the process of building a very powerful SDK (Software Development Kit) which will be available with the release of our VIM-201 camera. The SDK will come with published interfaces for image processing "finders" as well as publishing found object 3D (!) coordinates to user applications.
Our object tracking capability means that for the first time, your application will be able to track objects from frame to frame while the robot is still in motion! The power of this is really something to consider. It also means your application will be able to target items that are moving such as a box on an unsynchronized conveyor. Our Vision-in-Motion technology even enables us to even report the velocity and acceleration/deceleration of objects.
We're not afraid of motion, we thrive on it. But what nobody has ever done before is this: Our SDK will track all this for you!
If that weren't enough, we'll also provide robot control for advanced applications, enabling even a UR robot to change trajectories before reaching an intermediate way point. Our robot control software (under development) permits continual updating of the trajectory as the vision system detects changes in the scene.
We're looking for knowledgeable applications engineers who are willing to take a little time to review our interfaces and offer their insights and advice as we progress. If you're interested in participating, please send an email to:
