Fanuc robotic golf cell highlights precision and vision

Fanuc robotic golf cell highlights precision and vision

Fanuc UK will feature a robotic golf cell to showcase the capabilities of robots with intelligent vision at the PPMA Show. The golf cell will feature a Fanuc LR Mate 200iD human arm sized mini robot, with both 2D and 3D iRVision technology.

The LR Mate 200iD robot will pick and place a ball, and then putt the ball accurately achieving a hole-in-one each and every time.

Equipped with a Schunk tool changer and 3D iRVision sensors the robot will first select a vacuum gripper and then pick up a ball from the bin to drop on to the green. Having placed the ball on the green, the robot will change its end effector to a golf club.

Before taking a swing, the iRVision colour 2D camera detects the colour of ball to determine the direction of the putt - one colour ball is putted to the base of the windmill and another colour ball is projected through the windmill then into the Fanuc lettering. Using the robot's eyes, the ball is accurately struck - achieving a hole-in-one.

The complete golf cell is under the control of a FANUC high performance R-30iB robot controller - the robot's brain.
