CapSen Robotics released v1.0 release of its CapSen PiC solution, which turns any industrial robot arm into a robot work cell designed to tackle pick-and-place applications.
“Tasking a robot with making high-speed, accurate picks of parts presents several challenges, including the fact that parts can be randomly piled in containers, stacked on top of one another, or even entangled,” says Jared Glover, CEO, CapSen Robotics. “CapSen PiC takes aim at the most challenging bin-picking problems by combining 3D vision with advanced motion planning and control software to give robots spatial intelligence, and it does so without the need to custom program new parts.”
From CapSen Robotics:
- CapSen PiC software combines 3D vision, motion planning and control algorithms to give robots the ability to locate, pick and manipulate objects from cluttered bins and shelves. It correctly detects 3D objects in a range of different positions and orientations, even when partially occluded or in tight, variable workspaces. The software provides consistent and complete control of a robot, end effector, and 3D cameras within a robot cell, greatly reducing the integration burden of deploying a bin-picking system.
- CapSen PiC v1.0 offers advanced motion planning algorithms that ensure collision avoidance while delivering fast and accurate parts picking, re-grasping and even advanced tasks such as detangling and assembly.
