The Vision Show begins Tuesday in Boston, with Steve Varga, who leads engineering and R&D development for Procter & Gamble, delivering a keynote address describing the limitations of human-generated inspection algorithms and the need for machine learning as the next breakthrough tool.
On Wednesday, Leo Baldwin, principal engineer at Amazon, will discuss the serendipitous nature of innovation and the role failure plays in the process, and he will provide tips on how you can foster innovation in your company.
On the exhibit floor, ABB will feature two YuMi dual-arm, collaborative robot demonstrations:
- a vision-enabled, small parts assembly application, integrated with the ABB FlexFeeder, an ultra-compact flexible parts feeding system designed for applications such as consumer electronics, computers and communication devices; and
- an interactive, hands-on demo allowing attendees to program YuMi using ABB’s easy-to-use, lead-through programming technology.
Klas Bengtsson, ABB’s global product manager for vision and sensors, will make a presentation on Vision Guided Robotics as part of The Vision Show Conference. Nicolas De Keijser, ABB’s U.S. Assembly & Test business-line manager, will make a presentation on collaborative Robotics during the Collaborative Robotics Workshop that will be held in conjunction with the show.
