3D camera with Sony DepthSense sensor announced by Basler
3D point clouds and 2D gray images are produced in real time within the camera, at 30 fps.
Basler’s blaze 3D camera uses Sony DepthSense ToF technology, features a GigE interface, and offers VGA resolution. The blaze camera captures images in the near-infrared spectrum (around 940 nm) and creates multipart images that include distance, intensity, and confidence maps. 3D point clouds and 2D gray images are produced in real time within the camera, at 30 fps.
The IMX556PLR-C DepthSense image sensor features a CAPD (Current Assisted Photonic Demodulator) pixel structure and back-illuminated CMOS architecture. According to the manufacturer, this allows the blaze 3D camera to measure optical values almost to the millimeter over a measuring range of up to 10 m. The camera also features IP67 protection.
Design-in samples of the blaze 3D camera are scheduled for September 2019, with series production beginning at the end of the year.
