The Robot Has the View

Object identification

 The Robot Has the View

Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft (Germany)

March 16, 2022

A sensor developed by researchers at Germany's Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering successfully captures three-dimensional views of transparent objects. Verified in tests on a robot, the Glass360Dgree sensor can reliably identify objects spatially despite reflective or light-absorbing surfaces . A high-intensity carbon dioxide laser and a mobile optical setup with special lenses beam a line moving over the measured object in fractions of a second. The object absorbs and emits the laser light's energy for perception by the two thermal imaging cameras. Software analyzes the images of the heat signature left by the infrared line on the object, and reconstructs the spatial coordinates from the two viewing angles and the deformation in the recorded fringe pattern. It then combines the data into the precise dimensions of the object.  .... '
