The evolution and innovation of technology has greatly promoted the reform and progress of manufacturing industry. Industrial robots with touch, force or vision can work in more complex environments. If they have recognition function or further increase adaptive and self-learning functions, they will become intelligent industrial robots.
With the rapid development speed, industrial robots are taking the place of labor, engaging in heavy and boring work, and developing towards a more intelligent direction. Service robots will be the next outlet. But if we want to develop service robots, we need to let robots acquire human capabilities, first of all, vision.
Vision is very important to people. More than 90% of the information we get depends on our eyes. Let's take a look at the cutting-edge technology of artificial intelligence machine vision.
As a rapidly growing branch of artificial intelligence, machine vision inspection system equipment aims to give robots the same vision as ourselves. In the past few years, great progress has been made in the past few years due to the use of specialized neural networks to help robots recognize and understand images from the real world.
With the development of the Internet of things, there will be more and more precision industrial robots with multi-sensor and distributed control, which will gradually penetrate all aspects of the manufacturing industry, and transform from manufacturing implementation to service-oriented.
Machine vision is like human's eyes. With the cooperation of vision system, it is just like people have a pair of bright eyes, which can realize the automatic production under the condition of inaccurate workpiece position.
Positioning technology of industrial robot
The intelligent degree of robot affects the whole process of industrial evolution. Most of the traditional robots realize various operations through teaching and reproduction or pre programming, which greatly limits the application of robots. Robot motion control technology with hearing, machine vision and various sensors is a model of flexible automatic manufacturing technology. Using robot vision control, it does not need to teach or program the motion track of industrial robot in advance, which can save a lot of programming time, improve production efficiency and processing quality.
Let the robot, like a human being, have self-consciousness: where to go, what workpiece to grab, how much strength to grasp, and where to place the workpiece for assembly, it is not controlled by human set program, but by robot itself. This "self-control" process is actually through machine vision technology to give industrial robots intelligence.
Industrial online detection system
Machine vision is very active in various application fields of industrial on-line inspection, such as visual inspection of printed circuit board, automatic flaw detection of steel plate surface, measurement of parallelism and perpendicularity of large workpieces, detection of container volume or impurities, automatic identification and classification of mechanical parts, and measurement of geometric dimensions, etc.
Industrial application of machine vision technology
Machine vision detection system technology is widely used in electronic and semiconductor manufacturing, automobile manufacturing, industrial testing, drug testing and packaging, food packaging, printing testing, railway and highway testing, public security, finance, biomedicine, entertainment, military, chemical and scientific research fields.
The industrial field is undoubtedly the largest application area of machine vision inspection system. The important reason is that China has become the processing center of global manufacturing industry. The application of machine vision products in the industrial manufacturing field has reached the peak due to the high requirements of parts processing and the corresponding advanced production line transformation.
