Vision technology is key to make your products smart and autonomous. The aim of this masterclass is to inform you about the merits of vision technology and provide you insights about how to integrate these systems in your products or production in an effective way.
To keep or improve their competitive edge, machine builders are on the one hand obliged to maximise the quality of their machines and to minimise the faulty output. On the other hand, manufacturers of mechatronics products face a raising demand for autonomous and smart products. For companies active in the field of mechatronics, this is both a challenge and opportunity. In both cases, vision technology can be key to achieve new novel production systems and products.
The Mechatronica 4.0 project aims to help Flemish companies to realise the Industry 4.0-philosophy. Vision technology will be a key feature of the next generation of autonomous, safety and inspection systems, and is the focus of this Mechatronics 4.0 Masterclass. The aim is to inform you about the merits of vision technology and provide you insights about what it means to integrate these systems in your products or production. In addition, Flanders Make and imec will present their view on vision technology, which enables the realisation of smart vision based products. The different themes will be illustrated based on industrial use cases.
Typical questions that will be addressed during the masterclass:
- Can I use low cost vision technology to realise an inline quality monitoring system?
- How will a vision system help me to make my product autonomous in displacement and/or manipulation of goods?
- Can vision system help me to increase safety for my people working with ‘dangerous’ machinery?
- How do I train my vision system?
- Do I need a 1D, 2D, or 3D vision system? Which resolution do I need?
