Ricoh SC-10 Human Assistance Camera (en)
The SC-10 combines a camera, image recognition, and control into a self-contained, compact unit that can help prevent errors in manual assembly operations. The system guides operators with instructions via a screen that is connected directly to the unit. Once the assembly has been completed, it verifies that it is correct and logs it all into a CSV file, with an option to save the image as well, as a digital audit trail.
The system is able to recognise string data, patterns, colours, and even textures. With a 1/3-inch colour CMOS sensor and two magnification options, it is capable of covering most work assembly benches.
