Basler 3D Cameras
Simplify your system with sensors for the third dimension
3D image processing has been a fast-growing entry on the markets for industrial image processing, opening up an ever-growing range of possibilities. In the coming years, 3D will become increasingly significant especially due to the trend towards Industry 4.0 and the growth of automation.
3D image processing is used in particular whenever volumes, shapes or the 3D position of objects will be analyzed. Depth information can also be used to handle tasks in the examination of objects and defect images that do not have enough contrast for 2D but do show a recognizable difference in height.
However, existing industrial 3D solutions are often too complex and expensive for many "simple" 3D applications. Basler offers 3D technology suitable for the mass market: with the Basler blaze camera with integrated DepthSense™ technology from Sony, we help our customers lower their total system costs and design their 3D applications more efficiently.

How Does a ToF Camera Work?
The measurement principle is based on the time the light needs to travel from the light source to the object and back to the camera; the further the distance, the longer the time taken. Both light source and image acquisition are synchronized in such a way that the distances can be extracted and calculated from the image data.
The fully-calibrated Basler blaze 3D camera with integrated optics and GigE interface uses the time-of-flight principle to capture scenes and objects at a glance, generating 2D and 3D data with a multipart image from distance-, intensity and confidence maps in real time. Elimination of moving components means robustness and stability for a variety of applications such as robotics, industrial automation, logistics and medicine, and in the "Smart Factory". Integrated Sony DepthSense™ sensor technology makes 3D measurements more precise, accurate and faster.
Planning and optimizing space and costs in a warehouse or transport vehicle, requires knowing both the weight and size of the pallets and packages.
Next day delivery and mixed pallets require fast and intelligent palletizing robots to pack objects closely on one pallet. Machine vision guides these robots.
Autonomous vehicles & mobile robots
Navigation, obstacle detection and fine positioning during docking and recording require a complete view of the surroundings in high resolution.
Counting objects in a package and checking for completeness ensures that customers receive exactly the quantity of goods they expect.
The exact position of a patient during x-raying does not only influence the quality of the images. It also helps to minimize the necessary radiation dose.
