Braintech Partners With ABB Robotics at Robot & Vision Show

Companies to Exhibit Cognitive Robotics Technologies

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - June 5, 2007) - Braintech Inc. (OTCBB: BRHI), a leading provider of robot vision technologies will exhibit its latest version of eVisionFactory™, featuring advanced 3D Vision Technologies. Additionally, Braintech personnel will support ABB Robotics (NYSE: ABB) exhibition of TrueView™ Cognitive Robotic systems.

Owen Jones, Braintech's CEO, says, "Since 1999, we've been working with the ABB Robotics group developing a comprehensive suite of robot vision technologies for manufacturers. With the introduction of SC3D™ in 2001, it became evident that robots with vision can do things that were never before performed by unattended machines. Through collaborative R&D, we're continuing to develop more powerful robot vision technologies, now giving ABB robots Cognitive capabilities. Our goal is to provide manufacturers with the means to automate processes that require a high degree of reasoning and in doing so allow manufacturers to locate plants close to their markets and not be disadvantaged by globalization."

At the ABB booth, attendees will have a chance to see examples of systems already working in the field and gain first hand knowledge of how they're making a difference. Also, Braintech's Chief Technologist, Babak Habibi will discuss the latest advances in bin picking as part of Session 6: Advances in Bin Picking, Wednesday June 13th, 8-10AM.
