Overcoming Obstacles with 3D Vision Technologies

Posted by Keith Vozel on Feb 16, 2017 8:40:10 AM

Quickly grabbing and orienting a random part from a bin has never been an easy task for a robot. So it often falls to humans to find and process parts. Whether the piece is a plastic handle for a tote or a part for a car or computer, the process is similar. While machine designers have tried to automate a lot of this work, fickle lighting conditions in factories and parts of varying shapes can pose a problem just thorny enough to stump most robots.

Robots: A Glimpse Into the Future (Part 1 of 2)

Posted by Erik Nieves on Jan 21, 2014 9:39:48 AM

As we consider the future of industrial robotics, it’s helpful to remember how our technology has become successful over the past thirty years. The success of industrial robots has been marked by their ability to ease the burden of labor. Wherever robots can perform tasks at the same level of quality as their human counterparts, those applications quickly become automated. This allows the factory to focus human labor on tasks requiring more skill, dexterity or intelligence than robots offer. It’s this fluidity of human labor that leads to greater productivity and improved business outcomes.
