SICK application simulation for robotic depalletising systems

SICK is leveraging the industrial metaverse to provide users with smarter services and applications, such as its application simulation for robotic depalletising systems.

This simulation allows companies to virtually assess how a robot will perform with their specific model and warehouse set-up before any physical interaction with sensors is required. They can use advanced virtual versions of SICK’s sensor technologies, like microScan3, safeVisionary2 and PALLOC-VS, to help ensure optimal functionality.

By collaborating with NVIDIA and leveraging its advanced simulation technologies, such as the NVIDIA Isaac Sim platform built on NVIDIA Omniverse, SICK can demonstrate, emulate and refine solutions within a virtual environment. This translates to faster exploration, customisation and efficient delivery of tailored solutions for users.

NVIDIA Omniverse acts as a bridge, integrating technologies like Universal Scene Description (OpenUSD) and NVIDIA RTX rendering. This brings the abstract concepts of immersive industrial digitalisation closer to reality. SICK is building on Omniverse to develop comprehensive solutions, leveraging technologies like real-time ray tracing for collaboration, solution visualisation and more. This paves the way for GPU-accelerated simulation of light-based sensors in dynamic, real-world environments, all happening in real time.

The integration of the RTX LiDAR library within NVIDIA Isaac Sim has enabled SICK to virtualise its entire LiDAR portfolio. Soon, virtual SICK sensor models will be shared with the Isaac Sim user community, allowing for broader experimentation and innovation across various applications. Users will have access to sensors like multiScan136, picoScan150, TiM781 and microScan3, further expanding the possibilities.

The collaboration between SICK and NVIDIA extends even further. They are leveraging the recently announced NVIDIA Omniverse Cloud APIs to distribute virtualised SICK sensor models. This allows users to integrate sensor simulation capabilities directly into their workflows and applications.
