Robotics and 3D vision panel discussion

Share this on social media:

Robot automation has huge benefits for manufacturing, which has been emphasised to some extent during the pandemic. The vision technology used to guide industrial robots can achieve excellent results, but is machine vision reaching its full potential? We gathered a panel of experts to ask how vision can help advance robot automation and improve uptake of robotics in manufacturing.



The panellists are:

  • Kamel Saidi, leader of the Sensing and Perception Systems Group, National Institute of Standards and Technology
  • Mark Robson, senior research engineer, UK Manufacturing Technology Centre
  • Peter Soetens, CEO, Pickit
  • Oliver Selby, robotics business development manager, Fanuc
  • Moderator: Greg Blackman, editor, Imaging and Machine Vision Europe
