Measurement of rear lights of cars


  • A robot, Mitsubishi RV-6SL, measures tail lights of vehicles within its repeatability.
  • The measurement results are transmitted via RS32 to a higher-level control system (IPC), which carries out the evaluation.
  • The system now exists in eight different versions and is used for rear lights of well-known car manufacturers.
  • With these machines 100% of all manufactured lights are checked, which means perfect quality for the manufacturer of the lights as well as for the car manufacturer.

Special Features

  • The traversing program is complex because the parts to be measured are measured with six predefined measuring points each. The difficulty here is the approach of the individual measuring points, always perpendicular to the respective surface. (approaching the points via vectors in 3-dimensional space)
  • Automatic basic position movement of the robot from any situation.
