What Are Robotic Vision Systems?

What Are Robotic Vision Systems? From its earliest roots, the industrial assembly line has been focused on increasing efficiency and productivity. Over the last 100 years, technology has changed the way manufacturing facilities operate, but the end goal—producing a product quickly, efficiently and correctly—has always remained the same. With those three goals in mind, the […]

Guiding the Way in Automotive Plants

Guiding the Way in Automotive Plants Vision-guided robotics commonly used in today’s automotive plants enables robots to “see” the object they are working on so they can perform the required activity accurately on/to an object that is not in a repeatable location. Traditionally, programming a vision-guided robotics system has been a complicated process. In many […]

Vision Systems Design Magazine

Smart camera and vision algorithms combine for robotic vision guidance platform When a larger automotive OEM required robotic guidance in a smaller, more cost-effective form factor in an assembly process, Recognition Robotics developed an improved version of its previously-released robotic guidance product. In 2012, Recognition Robotics introduced its Robeye solution for robot guidance that was […]
