CONSIGHT is a computer vision based system developed by General Motors which is able to locate and identify parts on moving conveyor belts. Two different factory applications are presented which illustrate CONSIGHT's capabilities and which bring out some of the issues of developing production systems. The first system discussed employs a single vision station and a series of pneumatic kicker devices to sort passing parts into one of 16 bins. The second system employs a single vision station and multiple robot stations to load large castings from a conveyor into shipping containers.
