How does the Pick-it 3D camera work?

The Pick-it camera uses structured light to calculate the 3D image.

Structured light is the process of projecting a known pattern onto a scene. The way that this pattern deforms allows Pick-it to calculate the depth and surface information of the products you want to be picked.

The advantage of the structured-light 3D Pick-it camera is speed and precision. Instead of scanning one point at a time, the Pick-it camera measures up to 300.000 points in real-time at 30 frames per second. This allows the camera to be much faster than line scanners.

Furthermore the Pick-it camera can see your products even without any light, so it keeps working in the dark.
