Universal Robotics Launches Spatial Vision 2.0

NASHVILLE, TN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Mar 11, 2011 -- Universal Robotics, Inc. has launched version 2.0 of its 3D vision software, Spatial Vision. The product, which turns a pair of webcams into a cost-efficient and accurate 3D vision system, now includes enhanced accuracy tools, support for new cameras, and improved user interfaces.

"When we launched Spatial Vision in 2010, it was a great advance in the 3D vision market," said David Peters, CEO of Universal Robotics. "It made setting up an accurate 3D vision system in any setting simple and affordable. With Spatial Vision 2.0, we've incorporated system improvements and feedback from our customers to make an even more precise and easy-to-use product. Spatial Vision is an ideal solution for anyone seeking 3D capabilities for industrial automation, security, robotic applications, research or entertainment."

Spatial Vision 2.0 can be deployed in any setting where pairs of cameras can be installed, including manufacturing lines, warehouses, laboratories, office buildings and department stores. Using two web cameras that can be set up and calibrated quickly, Spatial Vision 2.0 determines the 3D position of any point in space relative to the cameras with millimeter accuracy in real-time.

Spatial Vision 2.0 features functionality advancements that give users more control and accuracy of the easy-to-setup system. During set-up and calibration, a 30 minute process, Spatial Vision 2.0 guides the user to position the fiducial -- a checkerboard pattern used to align the cameras -- to achieve ideal calibration results. Calibration images are color coded to visually indicate the success or failure of calibration. Once the system is aligned, an accuracy calculator displays information on expected accuracy given the current calibration and camera resolution.

Additionally, Spatial Vision 2.0 assists the user in gaining superior accuracy. A built-in snap-to-corner tool assists the user in targeting an exact pixel for more precise distance measurement results. In addition to inexpensive web cameras that provide the most affordable option to achieve 3D vision, Spatial Vision 2.0 gives users the option to use GigE Allied Vision cameras for even higher levels of accuracy.

User interfaces for Spatial Vision 2.0 are also more intuitive. Combined with enhanced, faster algorithms, Spatial Vision 2.0 sets new levels of speed, simplicity and accuracy.

Spatial Vision 2.0 is available for $439. Spatial Vision 2.0 Logitech Bundle with two Logitech webcams is $599. Special licenses for educational institutions are available for $99. Visit UniversalRobotics.com/SpatialVision.html for more information.
