IDS industrial cameras as "robot eyes" in potentially explosive environments
Rough and inhospitable, extremely hot or cold, fire or explosion hazard. Robots for routine and ad-hoc safety checks in unmanned systems are used wherever people are reluctant to be present.
ExRobotics B.V., based in Halsteren, Netherlands, is a leading expert in this field. Their products replace the sight, hearing, smell, touch and hands of their users. The Dutch manufacturer relies on image processing with industrial cameras from IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH.
On board of the inspection robots: a USB 3.0 UI-3591LE-C-HQ with 18 megapixel sensor for forward viewing, zoom and inspection and two USB 2.0 UI-1461LE-C-HQ cameras with 3.1 megapixels for navigation.
