Industrial machine vision plays a key role in achieving quality control in manufacturing, cost reduction and added customer satisfaction. Machine vision system applications include sorting, packing, and material handling, but can also monitor manufacturing processes to identify problems before they have a significant impact on the quality of products.
- In this presentation we will answer some fundamental questions, such as:
- What is machine vision?
- Where did it come from and where is it going?
- How is it related to industrial robots?
- What can machine vision brings to robotic and process automation?
- What are the key components of a machine vision system?
We will review the lighting, lenses and filters, cameras, interfaces, and image processing components of industrial machine vision systems. During the session we will review,
- Common applications and good practices
- Common mistakes and how to avoid them
- The ROI depending on the choice of a variety of technologies
Finally, we will envision the next steps to intelligent robotic in the scope of the 4th manufacturing revolution, how machine learning and artificial intelligence will bring robots to the digital age. The challenges ahead of us, what is already running and what to expect.
