LUCID Unveils Helios™2 Ray Time-of-Flight Camera Designed for Unmatched Performance in Outdoor Lighting Conditions

Updated: Feb 8

The Helios2 Ray camera from our Clusterpartner LUCID Vision is powered by Sony’s DepthSense IMX556PLR ToF image sensor and is specifically engineered for exceptional performance in challenging outdoor lighting environments. Equipped with 940nm VCSEL laser diodes, the Helios2 Ray generates real-time 3D point clouds, even in direct sunlight, making it suitable for a wide range of outdoor applications. The Helios2 Ray offers the same IP67 and Factory Tough™ design as the standard Helios2 camera featuring a 640 x 480 depth resolution at distances of up to 8.3 meters and a frame rate of 30 fps.

We’re excited to expand our acclaimed Helios2 Time-of-Flight camera family with the purpose-built Helios2 Ray, tailored explicitly for outdoor lighting conditions,” says Rod Barman, Founder and President of LUCID Vision Labs. The Helios2 Ray excels across a diverse range of outdoor applications, including agriculture, depalletization, environmental monitoring, and infrastructure inspection.”


LUCID’s proprietary Arena SDK integrates user-friendly controls for all Helios2 ToF cameras. The ArenaView GUI enables users to visualize scene intensity and depth in either 2D or 3D point cloud views, offering real-time manipulation and orientation. Additionally, the software facilitates on-the-fly adjustments, including false color overlay and depth range modifications.


All LUCID cameras conform to the GigE Vision 2.0 and GenICam3 standards and are supported by LUCID’s own Arena software development kit. The Arena SDK provides customers with easy access to the latest industry standards and software technology. The SDK is compatible with the Windows, Linux 64-bit, and Linux ARM operating systems, and supports the C, C++, C# and Python programming languages.
