3D APPLICATION & ROBOT VISION
A 3D scanner is a device that collects data on the geometry of a real-world object or environment. The information gathered will be utilized to create three-dimensional computer models. Artistic design, industrial design, reverse engineering, quality control inspection, prostheses, and the digitalization of cultural objects are just a few of the uses for which 3D data is collected. It's also utilized for internet commerce, movie production, and video game development.
Many other technologies can be employed to create these 3D-scanning devices, but stereo vision and laser triangulation with a sheet of light are the most prevalent. Two or more cameras with structure light or encode grating are used in a stereo vision system to derive 3D information on the surface of arbitrarily shaped objects.
The main idea behind the laser triangulation with sheet of light approach is to project a thin luminous straight line onto the surface of the object to be reconstructed using a laser line projector. The calibration relationship between the image plane and the laser plane may be used to compute the Y,Z world coordinate by deriving the laser line coordinate in these images. Furthermore, if the object moves along the X coordinate axis, the camera might collect a series of projected line images, yielding the object's X,Y,Z coordinates.
Because of their features, Daheng Imaging Cameras are well suited to 3D scanners:
Various resolition and frame rate
Excellent image quality
Light weight and tiny size
High time stamp accuracy
Excellent adaptability for portable or desktop 3D scanner requirements
GLASS BOTTLE PRODUCTION
We see a variety of glass bottles in our daily lives, such as beer bottles, drink bottles, perfume bottles, and so on. These glass bottles are often mould bottles, which are made by pouring liquid into a mould to form a specific shape. Another type of glass tube used in medicine or pharmacy is one that is made without a mould and requires a higher level of quality.
Vision systems are often deployed in the hot end or cold end of the glass bottle manufacturing process. The inspection machine uses high-speed cameras to gather real-time photos of a glass bottle, then extracts detailed geometric data and verifies the detects.
The inspection machine can identify waste bottles and expel them from the production line by comparing the measuring results to the pre-set dimensions requirements. This provides a strong assurance for bottle quality and production efficiency.
The MERCURY family's MER-131-210U3M, MER-132-43U3M, MER-503-36U3M, and MER-131-75GM-P have unique features such as high frame rate, exact capture, plug and play, and robust multi-camera operation. All of this has led to them becoming one of the most popular cameras among engineers in the glass bottle inspection system.
Because of the following features, Daheng Imaging Cameras are well suited for quality inspection in the glass bottle industry:

The items are normally sorted, read barcodes, and documented manually in the traditional logistics business before being transported to the pickup location. The sorting process necessitates a huge quantity of people due to the variety of commodities, shapes, and materials. It not only takes a long time and has a high sorting error rate, but it also costs a lot of money in terms of labour. The delivery speed would be significantly slowed.
To address this issue, DAHENG IMAGING created a vision sorting system that can quickly identify items while also determining their location. This system consists of a tiny digital camera from DAHENG IMAGING that uses a USB3.0 interface to transport data to a PC controller for analysis and processing.
Finally, the processed data is transferred to the robot via the Gigabit Ethernet interface, which is utilized to guide the robot through the 'pick up' procedure. As indicated in the diagram below, the sorting system can be utilized not only for automatic sorting in the logistics business, but also for a variety of industrial applications such as positioning, inspection, and measurement.
DAHENG IMAGING MERCURY cameras and a delta robot were used to create this logistics vision sorting system. The 3D image capture module, 3D image processing module, image coordinate transform to robot coordinate module, hand-eye calibration module, and robot control module make up the majority of the system.
The "3D image acquisition module" first catches the high-speed moving baskets on the conveyor line and extracts three-dimensional information about the products inside the baskets. Two MERCURY cameras and a laser light source make up this image acquisition package. The FOV (field of vision) and MR (measure range) both encompass the entire basket. The stereo vision approach is used to rebuild the object's 3d geometry information and determine its position.
"3D image processing module" divides the 3D features of the object into several separated pieces, analyses the most suitable grasping position of the goods, and then passes the position data to the "Image coordinate to robot coordinate" module after getting the 3D geometry information of the objects.
The "Image coordinate to robot coordinate" module transforms the best appropriate grabbing position of the products that have been previously to the robot coordinate utilizing the results of hand-eye calibration. The robot coordinate data will be communicated to the robot and performed by the robot control module via the communication protocol. The robot will accurately grasp the appropriate goods based on the grasping robot coordinate.
This 3D vision sorting system has several advantages over typical robot grasping systems: a) Increased sorting speed b) Make the transition from 2D plane grabbing to 3D plane grasping. c)Achieve a new hand-eye calibration approach despite the fact that the cameras and the robot are in different fields.
In this 3D system, MER-132-43U3M was employed. The camera can be quickly deployed under a variety of tough conditions and integrated into a variety of automatic devices to conduct machine vision tasks because to its small size, light weight, and high performance.
Because of their features, DAHENG IMAGING cameras are well adapted to transportation:
Ultra-compact, light and durable

Excellent image quality
Reliable performance in challenging conditions
Embedded vision has grown in popularity in recent years, and it is well suited for several applications where low cost, power consumption, size, and weight are paramount, such as pilotless cars, unmanned aerial vehicles, robots, and medical devices.
Personal computer platforms based on Intel architectures have maintained a significant processing power edge over the last decade, assuring their domination of most industrial computing applications. However, in recent years, ARM processor designs have been significantly updated, with more cores, instructions, and quicker pipelines added to improve performance, and they have begun to compete head-to-head with Intel and AMD PC processors in industrial applications. The term "embedded system" still connotes low cost and low power consumption, but it no longer implies poor computing power.
Today, we can see the rapid rise of artificial intelligence thanks to huge advances in computer capacity, data accumulation, mathematical tools, and so on (AI). The Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) is a mathematical method that is divided into two parts: training and inference. It is a part of the AI discipline.
The pilotless car is a common application of AI embedded systems. AI technologies are employed in this application to detect obstructions, recognize signs , traffic signals, cars, and people, and so on. A bank of cameras is mounted on and around the vehicle and is in charge of providing real-time photos. Before the car is driven on the road, data training is usually completed at the data center.
The inference algorithm that allows the detections to be made is also built into the ARM architecture. Because of its ARM+GPU processor, the NVIDIA Jetson TX1 or TX2 platform is especially popular in this application. GPUs are very good at manipulating computer graphics and image processing , and GPUs' highly parallel structure makes them more efficient than general-purpose CPUs for algorithms that process large blocks of data in parallel.
DAHENG IMAGING MER-231-41U3C is employed on NVIDIA Jetson TX2 for real-time driving detection in a successful tale. The USB3.0 camera's features of auto gain and auto exposure duration make it suitable for all types of weather and outdoor scenarios. The USB3.0 camera's ARM Linux SDK is built on 'libusb,' which provides a general USB device access, allowing data from USB3.0 cameras to be freely transferred to any ARMV7 or AMRV8 platform.
