Cameras key part of KoBeLU learning workstation
A project to improve vocational learning through an interactive, imaging-based workstation is underway in Germany, coordinated by Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich.
The three-year KoBeLU project will build 3D and 2D cameras into the workstation, which is designed to help students solve complex practical tasks. For example, the system can recognise if an electronic circuit board has been soldered correctly or if there are missing solder points.
The workstation’s 3D camera is now supplemented by the MvBlueGemini smart camera from Matrix Vision. The camera is easy to program, using wizards to choose the correct image analysis tool. The camera’s web-based approach also makes it possible to access the smart camera from around the world. This is ideal for large companies, which, for example, would like to control their professional development measures centrally.
Audi, Mahle International, the University of Munich and the University of Tübingen are all partners of the KoBeLU project.
