The surfaceCONTROL 3D 3500 sensor from Micro-Epsilon is used for high-precision inline 3D measurement. With a repeatability of up to 0.4µm in the z-direction, Valid3D technology enables complete 3D evaluations of geometry, shape and surface and is used for inline measurement. Included in the scope of delivery is 3DInspect, a universal software solution for the entire 3D sensor portfolio from Micro-Epsilon.
The 2020 Mars Rover mission will have 23 cameras on board. Descent cameras will help pilot the rover’s descent to the Martian surface. Engineering cameras will allow the rover to navigate the rocks and dust that cover the planet. And finally, scientific cameras will make observations and help collect samples.
