BUILT FOR TIGHT SPACES
Whether it’s for small spaces, pipes, homes or drones, wide-angle panomorph solutions help robots maneuver efficiently through its environment and capture more information for analysis.
The lens can be ruggedized for robots that operate in harsh environments. The resolution can also be customized based on robots viewing specifications. Augmented resolution on the periphery of the lens is ideal for vacuum and pipeline robots, since information located on the periphery of the lens is most important. Robots capable of 3-D reconstruction or interpreting its environment benefit from extra sensor coverage. Increased resolution in the center of the lens gives robots a human eye perception.
In robotic applications, lens characteristics and increased resolution is depended on the application. For pipeline robots, the resolution is concentrated on the periphery of the lens for high quality pipe inspection.

3-D reconstruction analytics are enhanced by 360° viewing functionality. Algorithms that correct the distortion display accurate images for the robot to interpret and reconstruct. For user-operated robots, viewing functionality provides a distortion-free image for guiding or observing a robot’s surroundings.
Digital pan-tilt-zoom allows users to navigate within a variety of immersive viewing modes.
Here are few examples of how panomorph solutions benefit the Robotic industry.
