Applying 3D imaging to automation and robotics

October 14, 2014

With a focus on the use of 3D imaging in industrial automation and robotics, this webcast will begin by explaining exactly what 3D imaging encompasses and why the technique is important for industrial applications. Imaging expert Clay Flannigan will review the various approaches to 3D sensing, and look at the commercial products offered to implement those methods. And, he will survey the software and techniques available for analyzing 3D data sets. The webcast will include plenty of real-world application examples to illustrate points throughout, and it will conclude with a Q&A session so attendees can get help with their particular issues.
