  • Visionary-B PS provides 3D data, 2D video images and object data via Gigabit Ethernet as well as a programming interface
  • Visionary-B CV is an intelligent, easily configurable 3D driver assistance system with a monitor for the driver’s cab that outputs active optical and acoustic warnings


3D snapshot – two-eye principle for effective use in outdoor environments

Thanks to the innovative 3D snapshot technology and its rugged mechanical design, the Visionary-B 3D vision sensor from SICK is ideally suited for harsh outdoor environments, e.g., ports, construction sites, or in agriculture. The Visionary-B uses the stereoscopic principle to deliver both 2D images and 3D data with every snapshot. Depending on the application, all the raw data and the intelligent image processing results can be transferred in the form of object classifications and position determinations. As a driver assistance system with a monitor and live image, Visionary-B provides a rugged, easily configurable 3D collision warning system that is quickly operational and actively warns the driver, acoustically and visually, in critical situations.
