VGR primer

Go to any automation show and you’ll see robots guided by machine vision. They make it look so easy, although you know it’s not. But how do you go about getting up to speed with vision guidance?

Well you start by reading “The gift of sight: A four-step approach to setting up a machine vision system for robot-based manufacturing” This straightforward article, published on, November 17th, 2011, discusses the main points to consider, in jargon-free English.

A particular strength of the article is how it covers robot-to-vision calibration. This is something I don’t think I’ve seen covered anywhere else, yet it’s essential (along with lighting,) to a successful implementation.

Read and learn.
