CapSen Robotics has developed a software product called CapSen PiC™ that combines 3D vision, motion planning and control algorithms to give robots the ability to locate, pick, and manipulate objects from cluttered bins and shelves. The PiC vision system can correctly detect 3D objects at a broad range of positions and orientations, even if they are partially occluded. The planning system allows robots to operate in tight, changing work spaces
CapSen PiC is an all-in-one solution to turn any industrial robot arm into a bin picking work cell. PiC uses CapSen's universal 3D computer vision and motion planning technologies, which means no custom programming is required for new parts. It is a smart and dependable way to enable short-run assemblies and re-purpose robots for different tasks. This ability is opening up new opportunities for robots in manufacturing, fulfillment, packaging, machine tending, and assembly. The software works with any object, any robot, and any 3D camera–it’s truly general purpose. It’s also the fastest software of its kind, which means robots with CapSen PiC(TM) achieve the fastest cycle times on the market and therefore the best ROIs.
