Advancements in machine vision are among key factors that shape automation trends in logistics — for example, the new machine vision capability to capture fast-moving objects in high quality. This task was not possible until recently, as it was only possible to get either fast scanning speed or high-quality 3D data — meaning that for a robot to precisely recognize and handle moving objects, it needed to stop moving for each scan acquisition. This has changed with a novel 3D-sensing approach that enables the capture of dynamic scenes in high resolution and accuracy, without motion artifacts. Allowing robots to handle fast-moving objects without interruption shakes up logistics automation by enabling new tasks, such as the recognition, picking, and sorting of objects moving on a conveyor belt or on an overhead conveyor; palletization and depalletization; the dimensioning of objects, their volume measurement, bounding box estimation, or counting; and an infinite number of other applications — all while in motion.
