Title: End of arm vision systems
Post by: McCouchsky on November 30, 2014, 01:27:47 PM
What would be the best vision system available on the market that can be attached to the end of a large robotic arm (like an industrial robot) and can be used to guide the arm to a drop/pick/weld etc point.

Say if you placed the robot near the workpiece and needed the arm to figure out by itself where to move, using its camera to locate reference points on the workpiece, and then using the x y and z coordinates to move both around and into (3D) place?

Are there vision systems like this?
