Machine Vision: 8 Companies that enable Industrial Robots to see

- Mar 07, 2019-

Through Machine Vision, Industrial Robots are able to perform complicated and elegant tasks by replicating human vision and more. Machine Vision equipment can be added to existing Robotic parts and make them smart, thus moving one step forward to the Factory of the Future.

Here you can find 7 solutions that drive innovation and bring the future closer day by day.

Aquifi

Aquifi creates purpose-built, low cost, IIoT and mobile hand-held 3D vision sensors for industrial environments.

Aquifi combines 3D sensors with 3D data and 3D deep learning to create 3D Fluid Vision, a low-cost by high performance technology that enables devices to learn and solve problems in logistics, industrial automation, and quality control and inspection.

LMI Technologies specialises in automating inline factory inspection through machine vision solutions such as scanners, snapshot or laser sensors.

Its flagship Gocator line is comprised of a series of smart sensors that can scan object shape and contrast, take measurements, and make critical control decisions at production speed.

Prophesee’s machine vision systems are bio-inspired and want to establish new benchmarks in data compression, dynamic range, speed and power efficiency.

These machine vision solutions automate industrial processes such as inspection, monitoring, object identification, tracking, handling, high speed motion control and more.

3D Infotech is specialised in a particular sector of machine vision called Universal Metrology Automation that employ Blue Light or Laser scanning to measure production line objects and capture data real-time in high-speeds.

Through its Streamline software, 3D Infotech’s sensors can be retro-fitted off-the-shelf to most industry standard hardware; they can also be adjusted to new solutions and integrate with a multitude fof extended systems such as

  • Multiple 3D sensors
