Robots_001As detailed in a recent Control Design cover story, improvements in vision systems are spurring the use of vision-guided robots in a variety of industrial applications. When vision is used to guide a robot, many benefits are realized including:

Robot can perform multiple tasks

  1. Programming effort is greatly reduced
  2. Flexibility of robot operation is increased
  3. Parts can be positioned with less precision
  4. Less expensive robots can be used

Video acquisition and encoding are key tasks that must be performed when pairing a vision system with a robot controller. Advantech provides products to quickly and efficiently execute these functions via their PCI Express and PCIe vision processing cards.Additional Information
