Laboratory of Production Lines and Image Recognition (V147)

      The laboratory is aimed at the research into, development, and application of production lines within the flexible manufacturing systems. To ensure the functionality of manipulators, robots and other mechatronic components allowing the implementation of assembly operations, the laboratory provides the distribution of compressed air, electric power at 24V DC, 230 V AC, 3x400 V AC and computer networks.
      To support the application of artificial intelligence tools and methods, the laboratory is equipped with intelligent sensors for recognizing monochrome and color images, sensors allowing color-based separation of components with programmable hue settings, and direct interaction between the robot manipulator and control system lines is supported. Basic industrial networks are used (Profibus, DeviceNet, ASI, Ethernet, etc.) to ensure communication between the individual components of production lines.
      Powerful development and application resources at the level of PLC and SCADA level, together with multidimensional database systems (MIS), are provided for the integration of production lines into the manufacturing and management information system in the enterprise.
      Regarding image recognition, a set of libraries and applications for the color and black-and-white image recognition is available. The laboratory houses two working models of production lines which function in the range of the five-level model DSR ( Flexible Assembly Company – FAC, Flexible Manufacturing System - FMS).
