O3D Smart Sensor

Posted by ifm efector, inc. (booth # 1162)

Summary of Innovation

ifm efector's O3D Smart Sensor for industrial applications is a one-of-a kind, powerful imaging solution designed to simplify current challenges faced in the industrial market by providing two “pre-built” applications, case completeness and box dimensioning, at an industry-leading price point. These applications are easy to use with our simple, downloadable software.
At the heart of the 3D Smart Sensor is the patented pmd Time-of-Flight (ToF) chip technology developed by our daughter company, pmd technologies. This same pmd chip is currently used in Google’s Project Tango to give mobile devices a human-scale sensing of depth and motion. Extremely flexible, robust and affordable, pmd ToF technology allows ifm to use depth sensing to solve traditionally difficult applications by enabling automated machines to perceive their environments in 3D, with human-like vision.

Innovation Statement

The O3D Smart Sensor provides a unique, easy to use imaging solution that enables automated machines to perceive their environments in 3D, the way humans do. Its compact, robust design and high repeatability and scalability, regardless of color or changes in lighting, makes it perfect for industrial material handling and packaging applications.

Applicability
