Volume measurement with time of flight sensor

The time of flight 3D scanner measures the volume of boxes and other containers. For this the EVT team has created with the EyeVision Process Mode Layout Editor a user interface for the easy-handling of the EyeVolume commands. First the container or box has to be put under the 3D scanner with closed lids. 

Then the EyeScan BT 3D scanner is measuring the height, length and width of the box and also the position. The box is then configured. Each container has to be configured or respectively taught-in only once, as the data of each box is saved to the data base from where the data can be loaded again when using similar boxes.

After the teach-in the box has to be opened. And the user only has to click onto 'measure volume' and then 'start' to carry out the volume measurement of the EyeVision software. Two main characters of the system are:

  1. The container has not to be aligned as the system detects the container in any rotation and position.
  2. When filling the box the software immediately measures and calculates the remaining volume in the box. The results are sent to the host computer with either RS232, Ethernet or Profinet. A change in boxes is recognised by the host computer immediately and the once taught-in box has not to be taught-in again.
