Sneak Peek: A Plug+Play Vision System for Universal Robots
/ Most recent by Petr_Tesarcik
On behalf of Robotiq and the DoF Crew, I am proud to present to the DoF pros before anybody else our new product, to launch on June 21, 2016, at Automatica: Camera, the 5-minute setup vision system for UR.
Robotiq’s Camera is a plug and play vision system for UR. It is comprised of a slim, self-lit wrist camera and easy to use software that installs right inside polyscope. No external PC is needed to setup, program and run Camera. Everything is done from the teach pendant.
Check out the duct tape go pro video of the Robotiq Camera in action:
Robotiq’s Camera vision system for UR is a part locator. Teach Camera its workspace, then teach its part, and you’re done. Camera will locate parts as soon as they appear in its field of vision. You can then add a pick and place program (using our other Gripper and Force Sensor UR kits or any other tool).
The Robotiq Camera will be on display at Automatica 2016, June 21-24 in Munich. We’ll put more videos on DoF shortly showing the user interface and some examples of applications.
Let us know what you think!
