Deep learning opens up new fields of application for industrial image processing, which previously could only be solved with great effort or not at all. The new, fundamentally different approach to classical image processing causes new challenges for users.
How can industrial robots gain new abilities that can increase their operational value while remaining safe and secure in a factory collaborating with humans?
Our FactorySmart® 3D sensors are used to improve production across the gamut of industrial applications, from factory automation to quality inspection and material/process optimization. Booth #4811
Researchers used deep learning to create a new laser-based system that can image around corners in real time. The systems might one day let self-driving cars "look" around parked cars or busy intersections.
Machine vision is used in a variety of industrial processes, such as material inspection, object recognition, pattern recognition, electronic component analysis, along with the recognition of signatures, optical characters, and currency.
Digital image sensors work based on the Photoelectric effect. When the image sensor is exposed to light (photons), an equivalent charge is produced by the image sensor. It is then converted to image data.
Robotic sight and machine vision systems can help our automata pick up on visual cues that we humans would probably miss or ignore, and they can deliver considerable value to companies that adopt them. Here's a look at where the technology has been and where it's headed.
The conditions placed on original equipment manufacturers and suppliers are immense in order to ensure high quality and continuous improvement, waste reduction and error minimization.
The traditional vision architecture is changing, with an evolution from cameras and sensors to networked and smart-enabled, compact embedded devices with the processing power required for real-time analysis.
For manufacturers, the reliability of the quality control of industrial parts of all kinds is crucial, because defective parts due to non-conformity have serious effects on production performance.
High-speed CXP 2.0 is ideal for AV and ADAS (Advanced Driver Assist Systems) connectivity applications. Camera images from multiple sources around the vehicle, along with data from sensors capturing object shape, speed and distance.
Autonomous Machine Vision (AMV) offers a revolutionary approach to QA, allowing manufacturers to have access to less expensive and user-friendly technology that does not require the intervention of any external expert.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent
• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
