Robotic high speed non contact Photogrammetry system for metrology and inspection

Xtura & Inovo Robotics have developed GigaBot™ the worlds first Robotic Photogrammetry Industrial 3D scanning Solution

GigaBot™ is an in/off-line quality and metrology Solution with integrated GigaScan™ Photogrammetry 3D Scanner. 

A Cobot, single Camera, Lens and Controller is the base of our GigaBot™ photogrammetry Quality and Metrology solution. 

The GigaScan™ technology incorporated into the GigaBot™ is a highly flexible, collaborative robot from lnovo matched with our custom calibrated high accuracy GigaScan™ camera.

GigaBot™ uses markerless (no stickers) photogrammetry which is different from other 3D Scanning technologies used in the industry today, it allows you the customer, the freedom to solve some of the more difficult in-line and off-line metrology challenges.

Capture a body-in-white, sheet metal inspection, weld seams on a part in production or interior trim analysing.

How does the GigaBot 3D Scanner work?

The GigaScan™ optical 3D Scanner uses targetless photogrammetry technology. This technology is used for both calibration and capture.

There is no procedure for calibrating the working volume which involves targets. This is unique for the GigaScan™ system. We use a pre-calibrated camera for all capturing. The accuracy is depended on the number of images and over lap between them in relation to the calibrated camera.

This guarantees the greatest accuracy irrespective of the robot working conditions.

GigaBot Technical Specifications

As can be seen in the table of system features above, GigaBot™ produces routine 3D measurement accuracy on a 3m object in the range with higher precision being possible.
The GigaBot™ exemplifies all of the fundamental advantages of photogrammetry: it is non-contact, immune to vibration and movement, and supports fast on-site automatic data capturing.

The GigaScan™ system has been fully tested and validated in accordance with the VDI/VDE 2634 standard for optical 3D measurement systems.
