Stäubli Robotics, Duncan, S.C., a robotics manufacturer, has created a partner agreement with Cognex Corp., a machine vision system provider in Natick, Mass. The partnership combines Stäubli's automated solutions with Cognex's vision systems.

The agreement was made to help Cognex develop its vision guided robot market.

Specifically, the agreement targets Cognex's InSight products, including Patmax, a geometric pattern matching software for location and recognition of form. This is supported by the remote head version of the InSight 5000 series camera that is compatible with standard robotic cables and connections.
