Design software for robot controllers
Matrox’s Design Assistant 4’s machine vision software now supports Denso’s binary control access protocol (b-CAP) robot interface and the development environment can be used to implement vision-based guidance without the need to directly program a robot controller from Denso. Support for b-CAP with Matrox Design Assistant is implemented as a set of client steps to connect to, request execution and disconnect from the server running on the Denso robot controller. No additional software, other than Matrox Design Assistant itself, is required on the vision system. Matrox Design Assistant 4 is a hardware-independent integrated development environment (IDE) designed to allow the user to create an application flowchart and human-machine interface (HMI) and take projects from concept to completion without the need for conventional programming.
