Platform Overview

We have built many bespoke 3D Vision solutions over the years but we always felt there was a better way to deploy our solutions in a more effective way.

With our new Platform called SensorView, we have taken a completely new approach to how we design, build and deploy our solutions.

There are three parts that make up the new platform, Configuration, Analysis & Deployment. You can find a brief description on what each is, on the right or a more in-depth discussion below.

Configure

With any 3D Vision solution, you need to be able to drop in and out any 3D sensor in a simple way. Once integrated, it needs to be easy to change the respective settings so that you can move to the analysis stage quickly.

Analyse

This is an iterative step, where we visualise, adjust and analyse, to acquire the optimum set of steps and relevant settings, in order to provide the required output. Our visual tools allow us to share our solutions at an early stage in the project with our customers. If we need to perform a basic Proof Of Concept, it can be considered at this stage.

Deploy

At all times in a project, we are conscious of the need to deploy the solution. There is little point in using software at a proof of concept stage, only to realise at the deployment stage that this software is not suitable and a new solution is required. This adds time, cost and risk to any project. The steps completed in the Configuration and Analysis stages are used in the Deployment phase. Read more below to find out how we do this.

Configure

With any project we want to start visualising the data from the 3D sensor as soon as possible. With our platform, we can start analysing the data in minutes of having the hardware configured.

Pre Configured 3D Sensor Modules

We are constantly adding to our database of 3D sensors, which makes it very easy for us to integrate the chosen sensor. It literally is as simple, as picking it from a list and dropping it into our pipeline workflow. If we don't have the sensor in our database, we can quickly include it for use.

Visualisation

Once we drop the 3D sensor into the pipeline, it automatically connects and we can start to visualise the 3D date instantly. This can save days, even weeks, as the modules have been tried and tested.

Script

Any settings that we need to make at this stage, are automatically saved into a script, which will become part of the main interface that is deployed to the final solution.

Analyse

This stage is iterative. We make use of all the available Filters that have been developed to create a bespoke solution, all using standard & validated modules. Each Filter can be visualised and provides instant feedback on how well it is performing with the Sensor data.

Filters

In SensorView, Filters are pipeline modules or algorithms that have inputs and outputs. They take in data on their inputs and produce transformed data or results on their outputs. These Filters are the backbone of the platform. Just some of the things we can do are Clean, Threshold, Slice, Align, Identify, Remove, Fit Features, Calculator, Crop, Extract, Measure, Plot.....

Custom Programmable Filter

If we need to create a custom Filter, then we use our Programmable Filter module. This is a general purpose Filter, that we can use to manipulate data in a custom way, that is not available via the standard modules. We might use it to talk to a third party system to acquire more data or it may be tailored to operate on a particular custom data set.

Script

As with the Configuration stage, any steps performed in the Analysis phase, are also saved to the same script for use in Deployment.
This eliminates, doubling up and recreating the sequence, thus saving time and money.

Deploy

Need help with just part of your 3D vision project?Have personnel that can do the heavy lifting but need support on a 3D project to make sure the project completes on time, within budget and with minimal risk?We have a range of kits that enable you to accelerate your project. We'll be adding kits to the website over time but if you don't see what you are looking for please reach out to us. We work with companies all over the world, helping them deploy their 3D Inspection & Measurement solutions.

Script

SensorView is the name of our software platform. It allows you to pull in any 3D sensor, integrate it with your motion control , visualise the data, analyse and then deploy your workflow to production. You can do this all from the same platform.

User Interface

Not sure how to physically connect your motion to your vision sensors. Not sure what is the right hardware to deploy your application on? We can help identify the best solution and tailor a kit that works best for your requirement.

Support

As part of any kit. you get our support. Again we can tailor a package that suits your requirements. Maybe you just need a few hours to bounce questions of from time to time. Maybe you would like us to drop online when you are trying to configure and analyse the 3D sensor for the first time.
