Your Robot Vision Software for Machine Tending, Automated Kitting and More

Reliable CAD-based Detection without Onsite Image Acquisition

The rc_reason CADMatch machine tending software module uses a CAD model as input, AppliedAI-based machine learning techniques for ensuring reliable detection, and highly intuitive user interfaces for ultimate usability. The module enables a robotic system to reliably detect, locate and pick objects from unmixed load carriers, completely independent of the object‘s position and orientation.

The user can easily configure the grasp points on any trained object through the WebGUI and add additional information about the load carrier and gripper for a complete visualization of the point cloud and potential collisions.

This software solution can significantly increase the efficiency of production processes, for example by automating machine tending, kitting processes or assembly operations.

  • Detection and localization of objects based on CAD data
  • Provides grasp point(s) for reliable pick-and-place tasks
  • Template creation provided as a service
  • Improves the efficiency of automation processes

Details about the CADMatch Machine Tending Software

The highly intuitive interface allows even non-experts to configure the grasp points and implement the pick-and-place process with just a few mouse clicks. The software supports the specification of one or more grasp points per object, hence enabling picking with a two-finger gripper or a suction device.

This module runs off-board the rc_visard or rc_viscore on an rc_cube IPC (not included) or on-board the rc_visard NG, and is operated through an intuitive WebGUI interface that includes a grasp-teaching interface. Note that the purchase of an rc_cube computer is required in order to operate the CADMatch module with an rc_visard or rc_viscore.

The CADMatch machine tending software module requires a template of the object to be detected. This serves as input to an AppliedAI-based detection process. The creation of this template from the object‘s CAD data is available as a service from Roboception; the first two templates are included with the software purchase. Feasibility studies can also be requested via our Customer Area.
