16 February 1984 An Integrated Robot Vision System For Industrial Use
Author Affiliations +
The use of industrial robots is a well established method for increasing flexibility and the degree of automization in manufacturing industry. Nevertheless, the ilsage of robots is often limited by the need for special peripheral equipment. Conventional sensors enable a robot to "feel" the workpiece and tools, but it is only first when the robot is provided with vision that it can identify and localize objects. The described robot vision system is completely integrated with the robot control system, thus resulting in lower costs for engineering design, installation,commissioning,operation and maintenance while increasing the system's reliability. It uses the same method for man-machine communication as the robot system does and can be utilized by the workshop personnel. It is adapted to industrial lighting intensity, which means that special lighting arrangements are not required.
