Vision guided robots (VGR) are robotic arms that have integrated machine vision systems for use in industrial pick-and-place tasks. In order to provide exact coordinates to a robotic arm, a specialised camera takes a picture of an item and analyses it. Once in the intended position, the robotic arm moves.
When a robot needs to be guided to a specific position for pick and place, the machine vision system assists in locating the object’s location. A VGR system is made up of a number of intricate components, and it’s simple to neglect small but crucial installation and design details.
The Global vision guided pick-and-place system market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Robotiq recently introduced a new robot vision-guided pick and place solution for Universal Robots that can be set up on a shop floor in five minutes. The Camera can be configured, programmed, and operated without an external PC. From the automaton user interface, everything is done correctly.
Robotiq’s Camera, according to early adopters of the technology, creates new opportunities for automation. All integration barriers that people are accustomed to seeing with vision systems in industrial automation are removed by the Robotiq Camera.
There are a lot of pick-and-place robot jobs that can now be programmed very quickly. This solution will be necessary for future UR robot projects. They continued seeing projects that would function much better with machine vision, but manufacturers stayed away due to the complexity and expense of current solutions.
It therefore set out to develop video and vision software that anyone could install and use. The small camera is designed to sit snugly on the UR wrist and has a direct connection to the controller.
Additionally, the user-friendly software of the Robotiq Camera is easily integrated into the graphical user interface of the Universal Robot.
Robotiq’s goal is to free up human labour from tiresome chores so that businesses and employees can concentrate on activities where they can add real value. The grippers and sensors increase the adaptability and ease of incorporation of robot applications.
