Hey all,

This is my first post here, I wonder if you guys know some good depth sensor for depth information? We want to generate something like a point cloud to show how far away a certain surface is to the robot arm end effect.

I know this post 1, but it is 2 years ago. I wonder if there is update on this?

Thank you in advance.

You'll find it hard to find the Asus or kinetic these days as they have been discontinued. The Orbbec Astra is the most current tech.

I'd recommend a as a 2D scanner - very good and easy to use
