Over the past year or so, we have noticed the popularity of a blog post that was most recently updated in Jan 2016 and persists to be one of the most visited pages over at ros-i.org. The 3D Camera Survey has been a popular resource and we have now moved it from just a Blog post but to a page that now resides under the Developer ribbon off the main page.

https://rosindustrial.org/3d-camera-survey/

We link between this new page and the blog post since there has been a decent comment history on the blog post page. Please feel free to comment here, or recommend other sensors, or what additional info would be helpful in the description of each sensor.

We are happy to provide resources that are beneficial to the Industrial community and to the broader ROS community so we look forward to keeping this one going!

Thanks in advance,

Hi Matt,

thx for this comprehensive overview. We really appreciate ongoing activities in the direction of open-source drivers for 3D vision devices.

However, we are wondering why our rc_visard didn’t make it to the list? It’s an affordable, well documented stereo-camera sensor with on-board processing resources and ego-motion estimation. As it is already on the market and people are using our ROS driver (which is being developed further thanks to the support of the ROSIN EU project), I think it would be nice to have it on the list too.

Did we miss any criteria here or could you please add it whenever you find some time? Please dont hesitate to contact us in case you need any further information, and thx for your efforts!

Thanks for the reply. I’m looking to see what we can add, so the rc_visard would definitely be one to add. We started with sensors that we have had “hands-on” experience with, and then have since included some that the community has provided, based on what they have used. So every sensor on the list at least someone in the development community has had experience with it.

I hope more organizations and developers include sensors/cameras to include, at which point we will update the page. We look forward to collaborating with the community to drive the most comprehensive list, with details that add the most value as well.

Thanks for driving awareness on our end, and I’ll get to work to get it added!

Please check back and see if how I entered the rc_visard meets your expectations. We would love to get our hands on one. What is lead time to US? Cost? Demo units available?
