Vision systems are used more and more in recent industrial robot applications for enhancing robot flexibility and intelligence. This paper presents the integration of a three-dimensional (3D) binocular stereo vision system into an industrial robot system. Examples are used to illustrate the developed method and its implementation including vision system setup and calibration, robot hand-eye integration, and vision measurement analysis. The results show that a 3D binocular stereo vision system is able to aid an industrial robot in performing robot motions to a given 3D part through accurate vision measurements and integrated robot programming.
