Does vision work well enough for industry?

Abstract

A multitude of pose estimation algorithms has been developed in the last decades and many proprietary computer vision packages exist which can simplify the setup process. Despite this, pose estimation still lacks the ease of use that robots have attained in the industry. The statement ”vision does not work” is still not uncommon in the industry, even from integrators. This points to difficulties in setting up solutions in industrial applications. In this paper, we analyze and investigate the current usage of pose estimation algorithms. A questionnaire was sent out to both university and industry. From this survey, it is clear that the actual setup time of pose estimation solutions is on average between 1–2 weeks, which poses a severe hindrance for the application of pose estimation algorithms. Finally, steps required for facilitating the use of pose estimation systems are discussed that can reduce complexities and thus the setup times in industrial applications.
