Research that Helps Machines See and Perform

UDRI’s nationally recognized researchers have direct experience in solving problems through the application of machine vision. We have developed and verified tool tracking systems that locate automobile parts and their fasteners (nuts, bolts, etc.) and conduct tool positioning and tracking without compromising positional accuracy. Our researchers determined how to robotically identify, engage, and tighten engine bolts reliably and efficiently, as our robotic system locates mounting bolts on the assembly and automatically tightens them.

In addition, our researchers have developed systems that use thermal cameras to help an international automaker accurately and reliably measure extreme temperatures in their High-Pressure Die Cast (HPDC) machines. Our client uses these machines to manufacture automotive transmission system components without the defects typically encountered after the fact.
