Chicago – Make plans to attend the IMTS 2014 Conferences to learn about Implementing Machine Vision Guided Robotics for Flexible Automation.
DATE: Tuesday, September 9 from 9:00 AM - 9:55 AM ROOM: W-192A
SPEAKER: David L. Dechow, Staff Engineer-Intelligent Robotics/Machine Vision, FANUC America Corp.
This conference session will provide an overview of vision guided robotics (VGR) and the integration of this valuable technology as part of a flexible automation manufacturing environment. The session will educate attendees about the basics of key machine vision components for robotic guidance, and best practices for implementing VGR on a plant floor. The speaker will discuss general theory of both 2D and 3D robotic guidance including techniques for calibration, part and feature location, and robot/vision system communications. The presentation will provide examples of varying technology offerings in today’s marketplace. The discussion will include real-life examples and details of how to achieve successful integration in two or three applications and how those applications facilitate flexible automation. The session will conclude with a forward-looking evaluation of related future trends and technology to watch for in coming years. The presentation will be targeted for both engineering professionals and project/corporate managers involved in or interested in the integration of machine vision guided robotics.
The educational and informative conferences run Sept. 8-11, 2014 in the West Building, Level 1. To register for this or any session, visit www.imts.com/education/imtsconference.html.
