3-D Imaging

3-D imaging is used in vision systems to enable the inspection  and analysis of a variety of industrial and non-industrial products. Reverse engineering, vision-guided assembly and palletizing of food products, and robot-assisted surgery are just a few of the applications where 3-D systems have been deployed. Stereo cameras, laser scanners, digital light projectors, structured-light systems, sensors, optics and lighting, and a full range of profiling, range mapping, and image-processing software tools make these applications possible.
