Picking the Unknown - Robust and Flexible Robotic Automation in Logistics

With more than 70% of labor in warehousing being dedicated to picking and packing, numerous companies are gradually investing in logistics automation. But what happens when the robots must handle an unlimited number of (unknown) stock keeping units?

Responding to the Market Need for Quality

The success of machine vision in industrial manufacturing is due to the fact that it provides faster, more accurate and more cost-effective QA than manual visual inspection.

Automate Image-based Inspection with Artificial Intelligence

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.

Intelligent Image Processing Supports Production Workers in Industrial 4.0 Applications

Automation plays a major role in Industry 4.0. Cost reduction, increased productivity and zero-defect quality are factors that are increasingly prompting companies to digitalize their processes. But often full automation also means high investments.

On the Track of Old Masters

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.

Business Perspectives and the Impacts of COVID-19 - Q&A with BitFlow Inc.

Donal Waide, Director of Sales at BifFlow Inc. shares with us his thoughts on how BitFlow is managing through the pandemic as well as insights into what the future of Robotics and Automation may be.

How Hexapod Robotic Platforms Can be used to Test Image Quality of Digital Imaging Cameras

Taking sharp pictures despite poor lighting conditions, taking snapshots without blurring, recognizing traffic signs and road markings or identifying dangerous situations with specific systems - all of this is possible today with the help of modern cameras.

AI for All - All-in-one Solution Makes the Technology User-friendly

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.

Seen, stored, learned - Self-learning robots solve tasks with the help of an Ensenso 3D camera

At the Institute for Intelligent Process Automation and Robotics of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the Robot Learning Group (ROLE) focuses on various aspects of machine learning. The scientists are investigating how robots can learn to solve tasks by trying them out independently.

Cut From the Same Cloth - Automatic 3D Recognition and Marking of Wooden Beams

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.

COMPUTER VISION AND ROBOTICS EXPAND INDUSTRIAL CAPABILITIES

How can industrial robots gain new abilities that can increase their operational value while remaining safe and secure in a factory collaborating with humans?

Discussing ATX West with LMI Technologies

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

Deep Learning Enables Real-Time Imaging Around Corners

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.

What is Machine Vision?

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.
