DESIGN OF ADJUSTABLE SMART VISION SYSTEM BASED ON ARTIFICIAL MUSCLE ACTUATORS

Abstract

The paper describes a proposal of positional adjustable camera system based on artificial muscles for rapidly changing products with different height and sizes on a conveyor belt. Measuring accuracy by camera system is heavily dependent on the distance of the camera system from the captured part. The ideal situation is that component occupying a largest area of the processed image. Current positioning technologies on the principle of ball screws with an electric motor do not reach sufficient speed to dynamically adjust the position of the camera system. Traditional technologies significantly increase the risk of vibration of the whole structure in the repeated resizing captured parts. Artificial muscles due to its flexibility significantly reduce the risk of vibration and noise of designed mechanism. The proposed smart camera system can be used to measure the dimensions or fault finding on manufactured parts in automated lines.
