Three-dimensional Visual Drive Industrial Robot Innovation Change

- Aug 14, 2017-

Choosing and placing objects is a very difficult task for the robot system in the past, because there is no good positioning method.But with the development of 3d vision, it is becoming more and more relaxed.

The emergence of 3d vision has promoted the rapid innovation of industrial robots and broadened their application prospects.The new vision technology gives the robot system flexibility to perform functions that have never been done before.

Industrial robots themselves are an incredible innovation in manufacturing, but the "blind" version of the robot has its limitations.So what is the difference between a 3d vision guided robot and a traditional robot?

Robots are used in large Numbers to replace tedious, repetitive tasks that liberate low-end labor.But because of the lack of visual perception and restricts their complete tasks more high-end, the traditional robot through programming required to complete a single task, and no ability to cope with the new change, when the task changes must be reprogrammed.

Flexibility is the key driving force of the robot return on investment, 3 d visual function will make the robot can complete multiple tasks without reprogramming, have in the work environment at the same time to predict unforeseen emergency.In addition, 3D vision allows the robot to recognize the object in front of it to a certain extent and respond accordingly.All of this improves the robot's flexibility to achieve faster and better return on investment.

Current 3 d vision technology in the industrial robot application there are a lot of ways, one of the most outstanding application is to pick-up and placement, this is a very difficult thing for the traditional robot, blind version of the robot can only from the predetermined position to pick up objects, two-dimensional camera system unable to part from the selected in the scene.

The 3d vision of laser triangulation is one of the most common methods of robot vision in picking and locating applications.In essence, a computer-aided design (CAD) model is taught to enable it to identify a part of the space and its direction.The laser is used to determine the position of the robot on the X, Y and Z axes, and once the robot knows where it and the parts are, it can pick up the parts and place them.

While this may seem like a simple task, it is a revolution in industry.It saves time and money for end users.With the simple description of CAD model, the robot can perform various tasks.

3d vision is the driving force of innovation, whether from laser triangulation or different methods.In the past, the choice and use of robots was very difficult, but now it will be a normal operation.
