Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR AUTOMATED ARTIFICIAL VISION GUIDED DISPENSING VISCOUS FLUIDS FOR CAULKING AND SEALING OPERATIONS
Abstract:
The present disclosure provides a method and system by which a precise amount of a viscous fluid sealing compound can be dispensed at required locations through computer vision-based observation of the fluid deposited, its rate and amount of deposition and location; and that the dispensed fluid may be accurately shaped through robotic or other special purpose mechanism motion. The invention enables instant quality inspection of the dispensing process in terms of the locations, amounts and shapes of newly created seals.
