Vision Set Add-on

The Vision Set Add-on and its on-wrist camera gives Ned the ability to interact with its environment with image recognition. Set your workspace and use industry 4.0advanced image processing functions.

  • Object detection based on colors and shapes
  • Easily performs complex functions like visual picking with new blocks in Niryo Studio’s Blockly interface
  • Overall range of vision thanks to the Wrist Vision Module
  • Modular workspace that can be fixed to the Ned thanks to the Mechanical Connector included, or used in many orientations and inclinations
  • Fits the Ned Ecosystem
  • Vision Set for Niryo Ned only $699

The Conveyor Belt and Vision Set Add-ons can even be used with other robots!


The Ned includes the Customizable Gripper. Other accessories include the Large Gripper, Adaptive Gripper, the Vacuum Pump and an Electromagnet. Plus, the EasyConnect system makes switching accessories and tools a snap! If you have a 3D printer, you can even create your own jaws to make them fit to your projects!

How can Ned be controlled?

  1. Turn on Ned’s learning mode to position it manually and teach it positions to reproduce. Controlling Ned can be as easy as pressing a button!
  2. With Niryo Studio, our free desktop application, use blocks to create your own robotic programs. Based on Blockly (similar to Scratch), our visual programming interface allows you to quickly and easily create robotic programs without any prior programming knowledge.
  3. Use an Arduino or a Raspberry Pi to control Ned through its digital inputs and outputs (tutorial).
  4. Advanced Users : develop your own controller (use a computer mouse, a keyboard, a game controller or Leap Motion to control Ned according to your preferences and needs), use our API (Python, Modbus, TCP) to control Ned directly or remotely, or dive directly into the ROS code, which is open-source.
