The 3D sensor rc_visard NG is an IP54-protected stereo-camera with on-board computing capabilities.

The rc_visard NG provides real-time camera images and depth images, which can be used to compute 3D point clouds. Additionally, it provides confidence and error images as quality measures for each image acquisition. It offers an intuitive web UI (user interface) and a standardized GenICam interface, making it compatible with all major image processing libraries.

With optionally available software modules the rc_visard NG provides out-of-the-box solutions for object detection and robotic pick-and-place applications.

The rc_visard NG’s intuitive calibration, configuration, and use enable 3D vision for everyone.
