CONSIGHT-I is a vision-based robot system that picks up parts randomly placed on a moving conveyor belt. The vision subsystem, operating in a visually noisy environment typical of manufacturing plants, determines the position and orientation of parts on the belt. The robot tracks the parts and transfers them to a predetermined location. CONSIGHT-I systems are easily retrainable for a wide class of complex curved parts and are being developed for production plant use.
