The robotics industry is not slowing down. Last year the robotics industry shipped more robots to North America than ever before. And companies today are figuring out that they can utilize machine vision and robotics in many new applications.
“The use of vision in a robot gives the robot the ability to see,” says Bob Doyle, vice president, Robotics Industry Association (RIA) & A3 Mexico. “It’s simple, but it’s really true. Robots, through programming, can do many different things, but when you add a vision component it opens up even more application opportunities.”
