90° FOV 3D camera from Chiaro Technologies

BOULDER, CO — Chiaro Technologies expands its range of motion capable Cloudburst 3D cameras with a 90° FOV in addition 50°. Cloudburst is factory­ calibrated making it simple to merge multiple pointclouds from single or multiple cameras, and now, with 90° FOV, it's easier than ever to capture very wide scenes or in tight spaces, such as automobile interiors.

Cloudb

urst 3D cameras stream rock­steady pointclouds or 640 x 480 depthmaps with a depth precision of ±0.75mm at 15 fps (acquisition only up to 30 fps). The cameras are ready to run out­of­the­box, without arcane parameters or cumbersome calibration. The Jetstream SDK simplifies deployment and allows for software or hardware triggering of one or more cameras. Libraries available for Windows 7 and above with Linux coming soon. The Jetstream SDK includes samples and source code in C/C++

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
