UR3e with a realsense depth camera D435i


I’m new to this forum. I have recently been working with the universal robot and it has been a great experience so far. I now received the intel realsense depth camera D435i. My goal at my university is to integrate this camera on the ur3e and try to program a vision system that can make the robot do pick and place operations on predefined objects.
I’m doing some research on the topic but there are so many programs and ways to do it, so I actually don’t know where to start. I hope this question is not to wide to answer but I thought maybe someone knows which programs are compatible to combine this camera with the UR3e. Or just a source where I can read more about it would also be great.

Thank you in advance!

I actually had a similar project for my dissertation, with an UR5e and the camera you mentioned. I used Python and socket TCP/IP communication to send the information to the robot.
I hope this helped you.
