Abstract

The recent introduction of low‐cost vision sensors has greatly increased the range of applications for vision. Within the arena of automated assembly there are a number of tasks that vision is suited to and these are outlined. Also the idea of distributing vision throughout the assembly process together with networking via Ethernet is examined.
