“Excellence in 3D stereo vision,” serves as the company’s slogan, so Vollset began by showcasing the Scorpion 3D Stinger compact camera, which has a field of view of 20 x 20 x 20 mm and a resolution of 0.002 mm (2 µm). The camera also has a 200 mm baseline, 1-2 mm depth resolution, and a working range from 750 – 5000 mm. Additionally, the company launched Scorpion 3D Stinger for Robot Vision 2.0, which is based on the new 3D Stinger cameras and upcoming Scorpion 12 software.

Scorpion 3D Stinger cameras are unique in that they are customized for every customer, so the angle, working distance, the optics, and the laser set up are adapted specifically for customer need.
