Vision System for Industrial Robots

8. Hardware: Camera mounting and background
Update #10189  |  01 Apr 2015


Custom made camera mounting is needed during developing time, because system will be tested in different environments and camera cannot be fixed in one place as it is in industrial application.

Custom made camera holder


Construction details

To create holder for my purpose I used standard camera tripod, aluminum C section-channel, clamp and nut.

To achieve best quality of object detection special background is needed. For first tests I will use white and black background. Also my idea for object position calculation require background markers placed near corners which will be used for calculations from image position to real position. Thanks to markers it will be very easy to calibrate system to new environment. I will show more information about background in Software: Background Area Configuration update.
