The main reason why robots need autofocus cameras is to achieve visual perception and environmental understanding. The camera can provide the robot with visual information to help the robot perceive the surrounding environment, identify target objects, navigate and avoid obstacles.
The following are the main application scenarios where the robot needs to use the camera:
Environment awareness and navigation: The automatic focus camera can obtain the image information of the robot’s environment, including the ground, walls, obstacles, etc., to help the robot to position, navigate and path planning. The camera can be used to identify landmarks, identify target objects and terrain to guide the robot’s movement and navigation.
Object detection and recognition: Auto-focus cameras can be used to detect and recognize specific target objects, such as faces, human bodies, objects, etc. Through image processing and computer vision algorithms, the robot can detect, classify and recognize objects through the image information obtained by the camera, so as to realize the interaction with the environment and people.
Visual ranging and measurement: Visual ranging and measurement can be performed by an autofocus camera to determine the distance, size and shape of the object from the robot. This is very important for the operation and obstacle avoidance of the robot, which can help the robot judge whether the object is near and far, whether the size is appropriate, and make corresponding reactions and decisions.
Object grab and manipulation: The autofocus camera provides visual feedback to the robot to help it accurately locate and grasp the target object. By obtaining the position, attitude and feature information of the object through the camera, the robot can accurately grasp and operate according to the information, improving the work efficiency and accuracy.
As an important sensing organ of the robot, the automatic focusing camera can provide the robot with visual information and environmental perception ability, so that it can better understand the surrounding environment, interact with the environment, and complete various tasks and operations.
