Automobile manufacturers are increasingly reliant on machine vision and industrial robotics technologies to accomplish several levels of automation throughout the production process.

Not only are these companies saving on the potential cost of manual labor, but they are also benefitting through save time, increased accuracy, and higher levels of safety at their facility, to name a few examples. It would not be unrealistic to say that machine vision has become a near ubiquitous technology in the automotive manufacturing sector.

In fact, numerous machine vision technologies are being deployed in today’s automotive inspection applications. This includes 3D imaging, barcode reading, multi-camera systems, smart cameras, and line scan cameras.

In this slideshow, check out 10 examples of automotive companies utilizing machine vision technologies in their manufacturing processes.
