Mar. 29, 2017 – Robotic Vision Technologies (RVT) has completed the software development of its collaborative 3D vision guidance software (cVF), set to debut at Automate 2017 on a Universal Robots’ UR5 controlling an OnRobot RG2 gripper.
The new cVF product will be on display performing several collaborative control functions at the RVT Automate Booth. The company says the cVF is particularly applicable to collaborative assembly, pick and place, handling and packaging.

It’s a game-changer in the automation world.”
