Thor Vollset – CEO and founder of Tordivel says : “The global shutter Scorpion 3D Venom Camera is designed to be used in cutting edge 3D stereo vision systems. It excels in short-to-medium size baseline using a single color or monochrome camera with resolution from VGA to 29 MP. Two or more virtual 3D cameras are created by a clever mirror design focused at a user specified working distance. The innovation opens up a whole new range of 3D application with code reading, foodtech and 3D assembly verification. The cameras creates 3D images without speed limitation
