Robotics Cameras


Cameras are the eyes of the modern robot and the primary sensing mechanism through which a human operator can guide a robot through its environment. Autonomous robots use computer vision systems to recognize waypoints, identify objects or adjust to their surroundings. Vision guided robots are used in a number of industrial, military, and medical applications. Industrial robots are used to ensure production quality, rapid assembly, and for carrying heavy loads or performing repeat tasks. The military incorporates robots for remote sensing, reconnaissance, and to minimize human exposure to dangerous situations. Medical robotics is a promising new field with surgeons using medical robots to perform operations remotely and even to look after and assist patients. These are just a few of the exciting robotics applications supported by Rice Camera Technologies. Note that the cameras supplied by Rice Camera Technologies are considered to be high-end cameras and not the type of camera you would use for a consumer hobby or simple drone.
