Author Affiliations +
Machine vision is an integral part in industry automation. This paper will discuss the 3-D vision technology and its applications. A brief description of several turkey automation systems developed and being developed that using 3-D vision technology in the fields of inspection and robotic guidance&control will be presented. The applications range from advanced robotic technology in automotive car production to sophisticated robotic system for U.S. Navy and Air force. This 3-D vision measuring capability has proved to the versatile key to successfully implementing adaptively controlled robot motion and robot path. Other extension of the technology to provide 3-D volumetric sensing and research effort in integrating 3-D vision with CAD/CAM system are examined.
