Use Case: Saline Pack Pick-and-Place
Packages come in all sizes, shapes, and materials, and can range from completely rigid to highly deformable. In typical production lines, packages must not only be inspected, but also manipulated, sorted, and transported with robots. The latter operation typically requires identifying features of the package, and selecting grasp points prior to robotic pick-and-place. Saline packs, for example, are highly deformable, transparent, and reflective, and often are stacked on top of each other. In-line inspection and real-time grasp point selection for robotic pick-and-place must be simultaneously performed in as little as 200 milliseconds.
SaigeVision® is being used in saline pack production facilities for both in-line inspection and centerpoint/orientation identification for handling and sorting.
