Bumblebee XB3

Multi-Baseline, Flexible, Long Range Precision

The Bumblebee® XB3 is a 3-sensor multi-baseline IEEE-1394b (800Mb/s) stereo camera designed for improved flexibility and accuracy. It features 1.3 mega-pixel sensors and has two baselines available for stereo processing. The extended baseline and high resolution provide more precision at longer ranges, while the narrow baseline improves close range matching and minimum-range limitations.


Bumblebee XB3 features:

  • Full field-of-view depth measurements from a single image set
  • Accurate – Epipolar lines are aligned to within 0.05 pixels RMS error based on a stereo resolution of 320×240
  • Real time transformation of images to 3D data. Cameras easily generate one million 3D points per second
  • Easy integration with other machine vision techniques. The images and 3D data are perfectly registered
  • Passive 3D sensing – no lasers or projectors required
  • No manual adjustements or in-field calibration required
  • Triclops™ Software Development Kit included with all FLIR Bumblebee stereo systems
