Practical Vision Guided Robotics

On Demand until March 27, 2019

Duration:30 minutes


Design and Implementation of Machine Vision and Robot Technologies for Flexible Automation

Intelligent automation systems for the plant floor increasingly rely on robotics and machine vision, generally known as “Vision Guided Robotics (VGR)”, to provide the flexibility and reliability demanded by today’s smart manufacturing environments. Practical implementation of successful VGR applications requires an understanding of general architecture and design, lighting and imaging, 2D and 3D machine vision, robots and calibration. This webcast will discuss some of the design considerations, components, and implementation techniques that go into VGR, and some of the important applications that are being served by this exciting technology.

Webcast topics will include:

  • Overview of vision guided robotics and the value proposition for VGR in flexible automation
  • Components and technology utilized in VGR
  • Key implementation techniques
  • The broad range of applications and industries benefiting from VGR
  • How to best specify VGR for automation applications

The webcast is targeted for engineers, managers, technicians and designers interested in or currently involved in industrial automation or planning to incorporate VGR for flexible automation.
