Adaptive Inspection Cell for HMI Consoles Conference Paper uri icon


  • The actual control quality standards require manufacturers to increase the inspection process. Instead of a sampling method, all items should be inspected and different equipment with different characteristics in the inspection cell need an adaptive system and the control quality cells should be enhanced. The presented work describes a self-adaptable robotized inspection cell for HMI consoles. which comprises the image acquisition system with controlled illumination and a force feedback sensor manipulated by a collaborative robot. The developed robotized cell is capable of detecting different HMI consoles and adapting the inspection routines of the manipulator robot according to the specific console. Moreover, the flexibility of the collaborative robot allows to adapt the camera positioning, lighting, and distance in a way that future HMI consoles can be inspected based on learning strategies.
