Support for depalletizing robot arms
Starting from release 1.9, Pick-it can do a robot-camera calibration with 4 degree of freedom robot arms. This type of robot arms is widely used for pallet unloading applications which is in line with our Pick-it L product.

Pick-it Teach improvements
Our vision experts have been working hard on the inner workings of the Pick-it Teachdetection engine to realise some major improvements. We can now detect more objects and different object models in a single detection. And that’s not even the best news: Detection times went down with at least a factor 2, from 2 to 3 seconds to below 1 second.
Detect multiple models at the same time
Pick-it Teach now allows to find multiple object sides in a single detection. Object sides are known as 'models' in the Pick-it language. This feature was added to be able to recognize objects from any view point.

Detecting more objects in less time
With this software release, the Pick-it Teach detection engine can find more objects in a single detection and it can do this in less than half of the detection time.
Perceive the mind-blowing result yourself in the image below. Pick-it teach can detect 16 objects with 2 object models in just 0.89 seconds!
