This paper outlines the integration of a two-dimensional vision system with a pneumatic proximity-to-tactile sensing device to form a Co-ordinated ‘Hand-Eye’ system. With the aid of a knowledge base this system is utilised as an intelligent condition monitoring tool for recognition and detection of orientation of parts in a flexible manufacturing environment. An expert system is formulated to interrogate the acquired data streams for the purpose of comparative studies with the knowledge base. Appropriate data processing methods are employed to ensure rapid manipulation of data for real-time applications.
