In this paper we present a novel 3D sensing approach for industrial bin-picking applications that is low-cost, fast and precise. The system uses a simple laser-line emitter. While a robot arm moves the object through the laser light, a synchronized camera captures the laser line image on the object. A full point cloud as well as an edge point cloud suitable for subsequent pose estimation is generated by the developed system. The aim of this work is to deliver an accurate point cloud based on
