An analysis of the geometry of light-striping vision systems for feedrate control in robot welding and other industrial processes

Abstract

Light-stripping, whereby a laser or other source of a stripe of light in conjunction with a single camera can provide three-dimensional information of a scene, can be used to estimate the volume of a seam gap for welding, fiig, or gluing robots, and thus provide automated feedrate control. The geometry of light-striping systems is analyzed to yield an… (More)
