The easy-to-integrate system consists of a module for robot arms, a computing unit with pre-installed intelligent software and a camera module, each equipped in series with two uEye+ XCP cameras from IDS.
Prior to the upgrade the process involved manual removal and depositing of bread packages, which was potentially error prone and certainly not as efficient. The team at KINE knew that machine vision was the only possible solution for this type of system.
Advances in semiconductors have led to dramatic developments in a wide range of sensor and camera technologies, including sensors/cameras for area scan and line scan, IP/network, 3D, and thermal imaging platforms.
A sentin VISION system uses AI-based recognition software and can be trained using a few sample images. Together with a GigE Vision CMOS industrial camera from IDS and an evaluation unit, it can be easily embedded in existing processes.
The analytical examinations of the painting were carried out not only before starting the treatment, but also during the cleaning. This allowed valuable information to be gathered on the condition of the surface layers as well as the layer structure and the materials used.
An Ensenso N35 camera is used to capture the beam position and geometry. As soon as the timber is in the printing position, the robot automatically places the flange-mounted camera so that it can detect the surfaces of the beam.
It combines high-performance force control, computer vision and advanced AI technologies, which enables the robot to adapt to the complicated environments, and accomplish better "hand-eye" coordination like human does.
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.
The Helix 511 delivers ultra-reliable, fanless computing using Intel® 12th Generation performance hybrid processing. The system is ideal for real-time decision making in robotics, with support for 4 simultaneous serial connections. Thanks to its fanless design, the Helix 511 is resistant to damage from airborne particulate, extreme temperatures, shock and vibration, and electromagnetic interference.
