The Intersection of Machine Vision, Collaborative Robots & AI: What You Need to Know

January 22, 2019

12:00 PM - 1 PM ET


Vision-guided collaborative robot systems are rapidly transforming production processes by making robots highly adaptable and easy to implement, while dramatically reducing the cost and complexity previously associated with the design and setup of fixed robotic cells. In this webinar, we will explore the role vision technology plays in supplying these factory systems with the interoperability, motion, measurement, and control capabilities required for key industrial robotic applications such as flexible quality inspection and pick-and-place. We will also discuss how emerging AI technologies are enhancing traditional robotic and machine vision systems, opening new applications and leading to better ROI.
