Lack of perception is a sandbag of intelligent automation

Industry 4.0 revolution is all about unleashing the power of intelligent machines so they can leave their safety cages. Unless they are versatile, modular, and reusable in different scenarios, they will not comply with the new standard.

 

industry 4.0

The new generation of robotic machines strongly depend on the ability to acquire, organize, and interpret surrounding visual data in real-time in order to stay aware of environmental situation and act both safely and adequately.

Evaluation Kit

VIPER™ Evaluation Kit is shipped with ROS Kinetic Kame based SDK, which provides C++ API to both low- and high-level access to the device: from controlling common parameters (video mode, frame rate, exposure, WB, gain) to outputting 3D point cloud, normals, depth map. In addition, API provides functions for dominant plane detection, background subtraction, bounding geometrical shape fitting, box detection, and natural object detection based on pre-trained reference models. Available 3rd party APIs: OpenCV and PCL. Sample code is provided that clarifies API features. Supported Linux compilers: gcc-4.8 or higher. Package contents: VIPER™ 3D Visual Perception System, AC adapter, Ethernet cable, Tripod, User Guide.
