Scorpion 3D Stinger – Picking Pipes from a Bin

We are proud to present for the first time a complete 3D simulation of picking pipes from a bin.

Pipe Picking Application Areas

The Scorpion 3D Stinger technology has an application area potential in Automotive,  3D Robot Vision, Security, Maritime Industry,  Fish Farming and Oil & Gas.

The pipe location feature capability can be adapted for picking pipes both in a factory and outdoor environment.

Simulation System Description

The simulated system is based on the Scorpion 3D Stinger Camera including a multiple laser line used as structured light element. The system has the following impressive features:

  • Full 3D without a 3D Scanner
    • fast robust and reliable in real-time 
      • capture and processing from 100 millisecond
  • The 3D images used is generated based on a standard 3D model
    • With Scorpion 3D Stinger we can evaluate and develope complete 3D machine vision solutions based on the part’s 3D model. This leads to lower cost and decreasing deployment time.
    • The simulation describes the complete process from 2D and 3D calibration to simulation of a complete picking sequence.
    • Scorpion 3D Stinger locates the pipes with sub-pixel accuracy

The 3D Robot Vision Scenario

The Scorpion 3D Stinger camera is mounted above the bin with pipes.

The pipes are placed in a bin with size 500 x 800 mm. The pixel resolution is approximately 0.8 mm.

The animation shows a complete simulation of a 3D bin picking system

The animation shows the following:

  • The pipe being picked in sequence
  • There are four layers of pipes at 103, 215, 330,450 mm
  • The top layer pipes are counted
  • The 3D model is generated by the Scorpion 3D Stinger software based on the laser lines.
  • The 3D model in the animation provides the basis for counting pipes and locating the selected pipe  in 3D with six degrees of freedom

The 3D pipe picking simulation will be presented at the Scorpion 3D Stinger Training in Oslo.
