This paper demonstrates an example of utilization of machine intelligence in automation. A system was developed to perform precision part inspection and automated workpiece handling. This system consists of a robot which is utilized to perform simple pick-and-place function, a MI VS-110 machine vision system which provides a vision library and the functions of masking and programmable image overlay, and an X-Y-θ table. This setup demonstrates a simplified approach to machine vision and automation. In this complete sensorimotor system, BASIC was the programming language to develop and integrate the control software for the inspection process by using the MI DS-100 machine vision development system. By calling vision functions, X-Y-θ table commands and simple robot commands, the task of parts" inspection under high- and low-resolution cameras, sorting, as well as disposition is shown to be easy to conceptualize and implement. This robot system can perform tasks without the necessity of prealigning or jigging workpieces. Numerous other applications can be accomplished by adopting a similar methodology.
