Robomotive integrates Zivid One 3D color camera in warehouse robotic picking cell
OSLO, Norway, September 19., 2018 – Zivid, the 3D machine vision camera company, has provided the 3D machine vision capability for DHL’s first fully automated e-commerce order picking robot cell. The Zivid One 3D color camera forms an integral part of a complete turnkey solution developed by leading robotic vision specialist Robomotive.
Installed at DHL’s warehouse in Beringe, Netherlands, the state-of-the-art robot cell is the centerpiece of highly-automated order-picking operations and is running 24/7. With a robot-mounted Zivid One 3D color camera, the robot cell handles products without the need for prior teaching or learning, performing depalletizing, picking and order-fulfillment functions.
“To realize such a project with the logistics industry’s global leader is clearly very exciting for our team,” said Michael Vermeer, CEO of Robomotive. “The tremendous versatility of the DHL robot cell combined with its high picking performance is really groundbreaking. It demanded incredibly accurate 3D machine vision which the Zivid One provided.”
“As a long-standing user of our Zivid One camera, Robomotive has shown us time and again how robots can perform very advanced picking tasks extremely fast,” said Thomas Embla Bonnerud, CEO of Zivid. “Achieving 600 picks per hour requires a high-performance 3D color camera and Robomotive has proved that Zivid One has the accuracy and speed that’s needed. DHL’s vision for the warehouse of the future is truly inspiring and we’re proud to have played a part in it.”
