Scorpion 3D Stinger CameraScorpion Vision says that using technology developed by Tordivel AS of Oslo, its 3D Stinger camera enables production-line robots to distinguish the exact height, depth and sizes of products on a manufacturing line, sending information to the robot to adjust where the picking arm goes accordingly.

The company say that its 3D camera also uses technology to process images in "real-time". This means that the total cycle time is only dictated by how fast the robot can pick. It is also able to detect if something moves into the field of view and send new picking co-ordinates to the robot.
