Manufacturing journalist Thomas R. Cutler reported the increasing demand for robotic vision is occurring throughout the manufacturing sector in age of COVID-19. Fewer bodies and eyes on the plant floor mandates that robotic vision “see” what would have been seen by human beings before COVID-19.
A blend of computer algorithms and camera gives robots the ability to ‘see’. The robot is able to see the product it is working on to ensure quality while perceiving the environment. This enhanced productivity ensures quality without slowing down the process.
During Q3 2020 and beyond there will be a fleet of such vision-based robots on the plant floor. Labor will return to work, but social distancing will not apply to robots. It will likely remain the status quo in human interaction moving forward. The technology of such solutions are ideal and apropos in this age of COVID-19.
Additionally, vision-based robots enhance safety on the production floor while promoting quality products through maintenance and inspection. Finally, and importantly these robots boost safety for human-robot interactions in the workplace.
