The multi-talent for 3D depth perception
The Nerian Ruby 3D depth camera is one of the most flexible 3D vision solutions at a very affordable price and a multi-talent for 3D depth perception.
The 3D depth camera Nerian Ruby combines 3D stereo camera and image processing system in one device. It enables: extremely fast & detailed real-time 3D image processing with up to 60 fps, precise 3D measurements on almost any surface thanks to an integrated patter projector and a direct transmission of fully computed 3D data via Ethernet, which solves the need for additional processing power on the host computer or GPU.
Benefits at a glance
The Nerian Ruby 3D depth camera combines stereo vision and structured light. Benefit from the best features of 3D vision technologies!
- Significantly more precise depth information because of up to 24 million 3D points/Sec.
- Stable 3D measurement during runtime in harsh environments thanks to automatic camera recalibration
- The ability to work indoors and outdoors, without interference with sunlight or other sensor technologies
Machine vision applications are as diverse as the 3D sensor technologies that enable those. Structured light camera systems are a preferred solution when precision is required, but neither high frame rates nor color information are needed. Stereo vision, on the other hand, is the preferred technology when measurements are to be made in daylight and/or over long measurement distances, but it has difficulties with textureless surfaces.
The Nerian Ruby 3D depth camera combines the best features of the aforementioned 3D vision technologies: stereo vision and structured light. The depth camera has three image sensors: two monochrome sensors for depth perception and an additional color sensor. In addition, an infrared pattern projector has been integrated, which improves depth perception but is invisible to the color sensor.
