Self-Contained Time-of-Flight 3D Imaging With the Basler Blaze

Time-of-Flight 3D cameras create an image based on the amount of time it takes light to travel from the built-in laser diodes, reflect off the surfaces in the scene, and image onto the Sony DepthSenseTM 3D sensor. Distance information is captured for every pixel, resulting in highly accurate depth maps of the scene.

The fully-calibrated Basler Blaze 3D imager, with integrated camera, optics, lights, and a GigE interface, generates 2D and 3D data with a multipart image based on distance, intensity, and confidence maps in real time.

Typical applications include: 

  • Robot guidance for palletizing
  • Counting
  • Load Dimensioning
  • AGV Guidance

The Basler Blaze Time-of-Flight (ToF) Camera offers:

  • Cost-effective 3D Time-of-Flight imaging.
  • Minimal impact from ambient sunlight.
    • Basler uses 940nm VCSEL laser diodes. Sunlight contains less than half the amount of 940nm light compared to the 850nm light used on competing ToF systems.
  • Real-time streaming of pre-processed 3D point clouds and 2D intensity images.
    • Image capture through Pylon or an SDK, as well as conformance with the ROS.
    • Compatibility with GenICam- GenTL and GenAPI standards
