Three dimensional imaging offers many benefits over traditional 2D vision in vision guided robotics (VGR), but it adds substantial complexity and cost. For processes that are more complex than basic 2D tasks but do not require or allow for complete 3D part location variance, 2.5D VGR can be a good option. Exactly what is two-and-a-half dimensional VGR, and where is it most successfully applied? This webcast will answer those questions and more. It will discuss implementation details of 2.5D VGR including vision system design, along with process considerations such as cycle time and application of the critical overall equipment efficiency (OEE) concept. The webcast will also offer simple algorithms for bin picking, and provide a number of real world examples that will help you understand the keys to success with 2.5 VGR.
