First mobile 3D sensor system with integrated 2D camera

First mobile 3D sensor system with integrated 2D camera and overlay function – now all in one.

This 3D smart camera from ifm electronic designed for mobile applications is the first 3D sensor system with integrated additional 2D camera. The overlay function allows to show obstacles and display warnings, symbols and even complex drawings in real time. The signal processing in the sensor makes an external process unit unnecessary. The ifm Vision Assistant allows user-specific parameter setting in just a few steps.


Augmented reality – now in real 3D

All text messages and graphic elements are either triggered by the integrated driver assistance system or by the machine controller via CAN. Thus, the user can always see all relevant warnings or other relevant details in the clearly structured camera image.


Integrated assistance system

In addition to the 3D and 2D image sensor a complete evaluation system is integrated in the housing. This system also provides an independent assistance system for collision avoidance for the user. Set-up only requires just a few steps using the Vision Assistant PC software. In addition to the analogue video output the smart camera also features a CAN and Ethernet UDP interface. The system can use this interface to supply warnings in critical situations autonomously. This trendsetting technology allows a completely new and quick perception
