The rc_cube is a high-performance 3D-image-processing device. It enhances the computing capabilities of the Roboception stereo camera rc_visard and supports the Basler blaze camera in an RGB-D setup and the rc_viscore.

Information about the supported devices are provided in


Unless specified, the information provided in this manual applies to both the rc_visard 65 and rc_visard 160 versions of the Roboception rc_visard sensor, as well as the rc_visard NG.


The term “blaze” used throughout the manual always refers to the Basler blaze camera in an RGB-D setup, i.e. the blaze Time-of-Flight camera in combination with the Basler aceA1300 color camera.

The rc_cube provides real-time camera images and depth images, which can be used to compute 3D point clouds. Additionally, it provides confidence and error images as quality measures for each image acquisition. It offers an intuitive web UI (user interface) and a standardized GenICam interface, making it compatible with all major image processing libraries.

With optionally available software modules the rc_cube provides out-of-the-box solutions for object detection and robotic pick-and-place applications.

The rc_cube is offered in two versions: rc_cube S and rc_cube I.

The rc_cube S is suitable for research, development and testing environments. It supports one rc_visard without additional hardware. A separate 2.5Gbit switch (not part of the product scope) enables the support of two rc_visard devices at a time or allows to connect an rc_viscore or a Basler blaze device.

The rc_cube I is intended for operational use in an industrial environment. It supports four rc_visard cameras, or two rc_viscore or Basler blaze devices without additional hardware.

Unless specified, the information provided in this manual applies to both the rc_cube S and rc_cube I versions of the rc_cube.
