Industrial machine-vision camera manufacturers JAI (San Jose, CA, USA) and PPT Vision (Bloomington, MN, USA) have announced that JAI's CM-140GE-UV ultraviolet (UV) camera and CM-030GE-RH remote-head camera models will be incorporated into PPT's M-Series embedded machine-vision system lineup.
The Bilibot Project started at MIT through the exploration of what could be done with the new Microsoft Kinect sensor. Besides being a great sensor for gesture technology, the Kinect is a powerful robotic sensor - so much so that robotics laboratories at universities across the world are replacing their $5000 sensors with the $150 Kinect! The Bilibot project takes advantage of this new technological breakthrough to provide a research quality robot at a hobby robot's price. For $1,200.00 you get: an iRobot Create a Kinect (modified to run off of a battery) a computer running all the nessecary open source software a small robot arm that uses geared motors, and can lift objects weighting up to 3 lbs and all the mounting hardware, , wiring and electronics needed to put it all together. They also have a promotion where they'll send you back $350 if you buy a BiliBot and program it to do something new and interesting and make the source available to the rest of the BiliBot community. The current batch of Bilibots are sold out but the next batch will be available in September.
With the WSG 50, SCHUNK is now able to offer a sensitive gripper that can be controlled via Ethernet TCP/IP in addition to Profibus DP. It also has an integrated Web server for configuration and diagnostics that makes programming, putting it into operation, remote maintenance, and updating, simple.
Baumer introduces photoelectric sensors with the new SmartReflect principle for absolutely reliable object detection. These light barriers create a closed light beam between the sensor and machine part. A separate reflector is unnecessary, reducing operating costs and increasing process safety. SmartReflect light barriers recognize objects of any kind.

Lumenlab's micRo-CNC is a precision fabrication system that is small enough to fit on a desktop and light enough to take anywhere. micRo is a unique system which can be used for both additive (printing) and subtractive (milling, cutting) fabrication. It is a precise, modular tool which allows you to create complex objects out of wood, metal, and plastic.
High Dynamic Range Cameras have an impressive dynamic range of 120 dB, which allows for a vast array of lighting levels
Microscan, the leading global supplier of embedded barcode scanners and imagers for life sciences, announces the new Vision MINI smart camera. As the world's smallest, fully integrated vision system, the ultra-compact Vision MINI is designed for reliable vision performance in embedded clinical and lab automation applications. Live demonstrations of the Vision MINI will be available at the upcoming American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) Annual Meeting in Atlanta, GA, scheduled to take place July 26-28, 2011 in Microscan's Booth #239.
Ever since High Resolution Systems LLC launched its Universal Device Controller (UDC), a software-based control platform that allows simple, cost-effective control of devices using IP (TCP/UDP) or serial (232/422/485) protocols, user feedback has been full of kudos.
RobotWorx has an article up that showcases various available robots that can aid in packaging and sorting tasks. Motoman's has a series of dual arm robots extremely well-suited for packing applications. Dual-arm robots are extremely precise and dexterous, offering human-like assembly capabilities. The arms can be programmed to work collaboratively or separately. The Fanuc M-1iA Robot (pictured above) is a lightweight and compact robot that is capable of sorting very small items and placing those items in packaging.
