Inhaltsangabe: The use of sensor's with machines, whether to control them continuously or to inspect and verify their operation, can be highly cost-effective in particular areas of industrial automation. Examples of such areas include sensing systems to monitor tool condition, force and torque sensing for robot assembly systems, vision-based automatic inspection, and tracking sensor's for robot arc welding and seam sealing. Many think these will be the basis of an important future industry. So far, design of sensor systems to meet these needs has been (in the interest of cheapness) rather ad hoc and carefully tailored to the application both as to the transducer hardware and the associated processing software. There are now, however, encouraging signs of commonality emerging between different sensor application areas. For instance, many commercial vision systems and some tactile systems just emerging from research are able to use more or less standardized techniques for two-dimensional image processing and shape representation. Structured-light triangulation systems can be applied with relatively minor hardware and software variations to measure three-dimensional profiles of objects as diverse as individual soldered joints, body pressings, and weldments. Sensors make it possible for machines to recover 'sensibly' from errors, and standard software proce dures such as expert systems can now be applied to facilitate this.
Inhaltsangabe: The increasing sophistication of robots depends largely on giving them sense. That is, the ability to detect and respond to changes in both their external and internal environment. There are many devices currently available, and more under development, which can serve this purpose. It is the aim of this book to show the engineer how best to make use of sensor technology in robotic engineering. The reader is first taken through the appropriate range of transducers for measuring position, light, force and velocity with a discussion of interfacing for each. Sensors based on these devices are taken up in the next section with a central chapter on vision sensing and another on tactile sensors. This leads on to the third section in which image processing is introduced, with discussions of image manipulation and image analysis. Clear, practical and well illustrated, this text allows the reader to grasp the essential instrumentation and electronics required of the modern manufacturing engineer. This book should be of interest to second and third year engineering students and manufacturing engineers.
