Alum Success

“I chose LSSU expecting a very good engineering education. What I didn’t expect was faculty with real-world engineering experience and abilities, labs with real-world equipment, projects with real-world outcomes, and an entire campus staff with real interest in my success, as a student and yet today. My LSSU engineering education has created or supported every desired career opportunity. LSSU was absolutely the right place for me.”

Project Description: Team A-VIS (Adexobot - Vision Integration Solution) has been tasked with developing an easy and reliable robotic vision integration solution. This project is sponsored by Advenovation, Inc., a robotics integration company from Rochester Hills, Mich. The project involves developing a user friendly interface to integrate machine vision with a universal robotics gripper to handle a wide range of objects.

A-VIS robot grippersThe goal of this project is to achieve simplicity and versatility for integrating robotic workcells with machine vision. Team A-VIS will develop a software package that will combine Cognex machine vision software and nonproprietary vision cameras with a FANUC robot controller. This software package will be quick to setup and easy to use for robotics applications. The universal robotics gripper that Team A-VIS is developing will handle objects from 24 different categories of household items such as: a bag of chips, a 2-liter soda bottle, or a container of laundry detergent.

This challenging project encompasses the typical components of a complete robotic vision integration system that includes an industrial robot, machine vision, software interface, and end-of-arm tooling. The successful completion of this project will provide a robotic automation solution that is unique to the robotics industry in its versatility and simplicity.
