Vision guidance technology for industrial robot arms has been around for decades. So why is this application still so difficult? 3D vision-guided robotics applications such as bin picking present challenges far beyond the vision system. These challenges must be anticipated to create successful applications. Longworth discusses the world of 3D robot guidance technology, including its challenges and best practices.
