Vision Guided Robots Play a Powerful Role in the Automotive Industry

Advanced artificial intelligence (AI) is bringing new excitement to vision guided robotics (VGRs), as reported in Quality Magazine. With an array of “advances in sophisticated technologies over the last decade,” VGRs are playing a major role in many industries.

Today’s Robotics are Contributing to Human Advancements

It’s been almost six decades “since General Motors pioneered the use of robotic systems in car manufacturing,” as reported on RoboticsTomorrow. With the sophisticated advancements in AI, known as deep learning, the automotive industry is accomplishing mundane and repetitive tasks with faster and safer results. Our technological advances are allowing the human workforce to pursue more intellectual and supervisory roles in today’s automotive manufacturing processes.

Advanced VGRs Deliver Precision Results in Complex and Labor-Intensive Tasks

As the RoboticsTomorrow article reports, “advanced robotic applications” are now handling even more complex tasks in the automotive industry, “beyond welding and painting.” From parts identification to defective parts separation, VGRs turn out precision results by selecting, examining, and moving flawless parts forward for assembly. Today’s advanced VGRs are opening the doors for bigger and better technology in the automotive manufacturing industry.

Calibrated Cobots are Changing Automotive Assembly Lines

Human assembly workers, powered with robotic endurance and intelligence, can tackle “complex labor-intensive and strenuous tasks with increased precision and flexibility” Collaborative Robots, becoming known as Cobots, are empowering humans to work faster on a safer and smarter factory floor.

With “installed sensors, Cobots can react to human contact and monitor the location of humans on the factory floor.” These highly-intelligent robots “are calibrated to avoid injury.” Cobots can detect danger and shut down production for human safety.

Today’s highly-intelligent  VGRs do not need constant programming, since they “learn through simulation.” The “smaller” size and “dexterous” capabilities of the today’s VGRs can tackle many more tasks and exceed human capabilities. These repetitive and heavier tasks, such as installation of “windshields, fenders, and door panels” can be done with “a higher level of accuracy.”

At Integro Technologies, we are excited to offer today’s VGR technology solutions that offer automatic calibration, precision, and sustainability  across automotive factory floors. Contact us to integrate this powerful technology.
