Course Overview

Leveraging on a range of autonomous robotics cells deployed at the smart factory within Temasek Polytechnic Advanced Manufacturing Centre, this course focuses on vision-assisted robotics technology with integration of the machine vision systems as the smart sensors onto industrial robots as an enabling technology for specific advanced manufacturing applications such as assembly, dismantling and packaging of products. A Vision Guided Robot System is essentially a robot configured with a set of industrial cameras and image processing units as the input devices to provide a secondary feedback signal for a robot to move accurately to a range of varied target positions. This is crucial for a robot to identify the exact location and orientation of a component dispatched by a part feeder for it to pick up within the confined area.
