As hard as it might be to believe, it was less than forty years ago that the first robots started appearing on production lines around the world. The earliest models were very limited in their capabilities, because they required highly detailed instructions to do even the simplest tasks. Today’s models are capable of learning as they go through the use of an intelligent camera, and the appropriate software.
The Intelligent Camera Acts Like the Robots Eyes
Today's intelligent camera uses a vision processor that is designed to function in a similar way to the human retina. It takes what it sees and converts it into data that can be used to help direct the robot in the proper procedure for doing its job. Without this system, today's robots would still be running blind in the same manner they just 40 years ago.
