Three dimensional imaging offers many benefits over traditional 2-D vision in vision guided robotics (VGR), but it adds substantial complexity and cost.
For processes that are more complex than basic 2-D tasks but do not require or allow for complete 3-D part location variance, two-and-a-half dimensional (2.5D) VGR can offer a good alternative. But exactly what is 2.5D VGR, and where can it be most successfully applied?
A new free one-hour webcast from Vision Systems Design aims to answer that question in detail. Presented by Kevin Ackerman, a controls specialist at JMP Engineering (London, Ontario, Canada), the webcast will discuss a number of real world examples that will help engineers understand the keys to success with 2.5 VGR.
The webcast will take place on December 11, 2012 at 11:00 am EST. Readers can register for the webcast here.
