Vision Guided Robotics

Kurt Thern, a Robotic Applications Engineer OMRON Robotics and Safety Technologies, Inc. will lead the discussion on this topic.  The presentation will use Omron equipment, but will be mostly based on Who, What, How and Why on Vision and Robots.  It should be quite interesting for the attendees to be introduced to this hybridized technical subject.

Please join us for the presentation by the newly reformed IEEE - RAS in Milwaukee. It is our first event.


Kurt Thern is a Robotic Applications Engineer for the Omron Automation Corp in Wisconsin. He is an Electrical Engineer with a BS and MS.  He has worked as an Automation Engineer, an Instrutor in the Technical College System and now at Omron.  He will introduce himself in detail as the meeting begins.

Address:Appleton, Wisconsin, United States

Specifics of collaborative robot demo and presentation to be finalizeds as this is non-commercial and more instructional, e.g.:

  • what makes this a collaborative vs. non-collaborative robot from a technical/engineering standpoint
  • what constitutes a collaborative robot application in light of certain stringent safety engineering standards for design and implementation.
  • Demo and hands-on for students/IEEE attendees
