Example of a robot equipped with robot vision following a target at high speed
High-speed image recognition and control enables the machine to respond to sudden changes in workpiece positions and orientations. Even if a workpiece suddenly moves, the system recognizes the change, and performs the operation by changing the gripping position. In the production process, the system can respond to sudden line stoppages and workpieces whose postures change easily.
