One of the major benefits of machine vision being used in industrial robots is increased flexibility. One robot with vision can perform the tasks of several blind robots.
“How you respond to the challenge in the second half will determine what you become after the game, whether you are a winner or a loser.”
Robots and Machine Vision
Machine vision is the ability of a machine to capture images, analyse them, understand them, and then react accordingly. Depending on the entrusted task, the vision system may consist of simple vision sensors or intelligent cameras, as well as an image processing interface, a processor and an appropriate software.
BENEFITS OF MACHINE VISION IN INDUSTRIAL ROBOTICS”
“I’ve failed over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
One of the major benefits of machine vision being used in industrial robots is increased flexibility. One robot with vision can perform the tasks of several blind robots. Intelligent programming allows a robot to switch between tasks seamlessly with little to no downtime.
Blind robots need to be programmed continually to widen their skill sets and to improve their performance. Robots with vision technology, however, require less programming. They are able to recognise the objects, and have an ability to adjust to its environment, pick up, locate and/or work on a part in any orientation, therefore they don’t need a precision part placement system to perform their job productively.
Machine vision in robotics provides more accuracy, and hence improves efficiency and performance, while reducing costs. It is the future of industrial manufacturing.
