Paper Abstract

Vision systems will play an increasing role in inteffigent material handling systems. This paper discusses two hardware principles which make possible a host of cost-effective applications--integrated vision systems and the use of retroreflective materials. Described are (1) the design cost and performance characteristics of integrated systems those with the microcomputer array detector and illumination as part of a single circuit (2) the impact of using retroreflective materials those with apparent brightness of more than 1000 times that of diffuse white surfaces and (3) some specific applications: AGV guidance part handling and AS/RS control.
