KINGSTAR - Conveyor Using Vision to Locate and Move Objects

POSTED 10/13/2015

This week our team in Taiwan attended a robot show, hosted by Hiwin. There were 1000’s of attendees and the show went far better than hoped. Check out our demo of a conveyor transports a part, a camera picks up its location, the electro-magnet moves the location to pick it up, the motion moves the part to the drop off location at the top of a slide that then deposits the part back to the conveyor. Pretty cool stuff!
