Development of vision-based robot guidance applications is faster, easier, more efficient and no longer requires traditional programming expertise
Matrox Imaging today announced that its Matrox Design Assistant machine vision software now supports DENSO’s binary control access protocol (b-CAP) robot interface. The Design Assistant application development environment can be used to implement vision-based guidance of DENSO robots without the need to directly program a DENSO robot controller.
Matrox Design Assistant 4 is the first hardware-independent integrated development environment (IDE) that lets users easily create an application flowchart and HMI and take projects from concept to completion in record time, without the need for conventional programming. Flexible project deployment options include Matrox Iris GT smart cameras, Matrox 4Sight GPm industrial imaging computers and PCs with standard GigE Vision® or USB3 Vision cameras.
“Matrox Imaging’s implementation of our b-CAP interface within Design Assistant means that all logic for the vision subsystem and the robot itself can be implemented within a single development environment,” said Yousuke Sawada, manager, Controller Business Unit, DENSO WAVE Incorporated. ”Integrators will appreciate the significant reduction in development time and cost this affords.”
“Demand for robots is ever-increasing as companies seek the benefits of automation and DENSO robots are widely used in manufacturing industries around the world,” said Sam Lopez, director of sales and marketing, Matrox Imaging. “With our support ofDENSO’s b-CAP interface in Design Assistant, our joint customers can now more quickly and cost-effectively deploy DENSO robots with vision-based guidance to improve quality, increase productivity, ensure safety and provide flexibility in their operations.”
Matrox Design Assistant will be featured at upcoming tradeshows including iREX 2015, Tokyo, Dec. 2–5, Daitron booth IRV-05.
