16 February 1984 Vision System To Identify Car Body Types For Spray Painting Robot
Author Affiliations +
The automation of car body spray booth operations employing paint spraying robots generally requires the robots to execute one of a number of defined routines according to the car body type. A vision system is described which identifies a car body type by its shape and provides an identity code to the robot controller thus enabling the correct routine to be executed. The vision system consists of a low cost linescan camera, a flucrescens light source and a microprocessor image analyser and is an example of a cost effective, reliable, industrially engineered robot vision system for a demanding production environment. Extension of the system with additional cameras will increase the application to the other automatic operations on a car assembly line where it becomes essential to reliably differentiate between up to 40 vatiations of body types.
