What is RobEye?

SIMPLE Robotic Guidance

  • Mimics human visual cortex
  • NOT standard machine vision
  • Works with ANY robot

VISUAL RECOGNITION

  • RRI Patented algorithms
  • Works similar to our brain
  • NOT standard machine vision

ONE IMAGE

  • ONE Image is all we need
  • NO complex multi camera setup
  • NO structured lighting (lasers etc.)

MANY DEGREES..

...of Freedom

X Y Z Rx Ry Rz!
Ignoring Rx and Ry is not acceptable for all applications!

MANY FIELDS

  • Body in White Part Rack Unloading
  • Conveyor Picking
  • Engine & Transmission Pick & Place
  • Piston Stuffing
  • Tire Value Stem inflation/deflation
  • ...this is just a few of over 80 application worldwide!

Benefits for Customer

Simplify Line feeding

Replacement for precise mechanical solutions (pre-centering tooling, conveyors, high repeatability rack/ rack stands etc.)

Reduce HPV (Hours Per Vehicle)

Ability to re-engineer solutions where inaccuracies of part positioning on rack are currently accounted by operator intervention.
Manpower reduction.

Increases Flexibility

New models will only need additional software programming.
No additional Vision Hardware.

Ease of use (more than ever)

  • No need to be a vision system expert.
  • Robot programmers can handle the system easily.
  • Save your best engineer for other tasks
  • NO CALIBRATION needed
  • No Cad Data is needed.

Fast and simple system setup

Mount (1) camera with (1) gigabit Ethernet cable connected to (1) Vision Controller.
5 minutes to teach a new model in the vision system.

Low MTTR

Reduced Downtime thanks to:

  • ONE CAMERA
  • ONE CABLE
  • NO CALIBRATION

How do we Differ?

NO Calibration!

That's simply true. Stop messing with calibration targets!

ONE Camera

ONE Image

NO Structured Light

HUGE operating range

  • If the camera can SEE it
  • If the Robot can REACH it
  • RobEye™ will GET it

Frequently Asked Questions

  • 1. How fast can your system identify and localize a part?

    Depends on the size of the part and the features recognized. Generally speaking, all of our automotive applications are less than 300ms for recognition, localization, and transmission of data to robot. Of course then the robot has to move

  • 2. What size parts can the system work with?

    We have applications in production from 1”x 3” clips all the way up to the entire body side panel of a large SUV

  • 3. What is the uncertainty of the extracted position and orientation (pose) of a part?

    Good question... Most of our applications use our patent pending iterative process where we insure the robot moved to where we told it to go, as well as verify our math. This iterative process insures accuracy to the capable resolution of the robot. We have an application in production, where a robot is guided to insert a piston into an engine cylinder to 100µm.

  • 4. What is the cost?

  • 5. Do you provide the identification and pose extraction software with the system?

    CortexRecognition® is the patented recognition engine that enables the Robeye™ system. The system comes complete with software, controller, camera, cables, and lights.

  • 6. What other software is needed to run it and can the output be read in realtime?

    No other software is need. Real time has not been achieved yet due to communication lag between the robot and Robeye™

  • 7. Are there certain kinds of parts that the system does not work well with (e.e., polished metal, glass, etc.)?

    System is most robust on parts with many features and details. System is least robust (in 6 degrees of freedom) on small simple shaped pieces and any piece with little to no contrast.

  • 8. Does the system require a CAD model of the parts to be identified and localized or can it be trained on a new part without a CAD model?

    NO CAD is required. Simple one button point & click = taught object.
