The industrial sector will soon be seeing Kinect to help them work! The Kinect Assembly Robot is an example of the upcoming idea that Kinect can be used to control major assembly robots. This video by TUMinformatics6 showcases the potential of the Kinect to revolutionize the workforce. In the video, big robot arms wait in standby as the user initiates the production process. The user then lays out the various parts on the work board. The Kinect detects the parts and when the user initiates robot assistance, the robot places parts and ensures the proper assembly sequence. Detecting the parts and acting accordingly is made possible through the Kinect’s depth camera. Now, robot and human can work together in order to produce products!
