    Intelligent assembly systems are being evolved to operate in a variable small-batch environments. In these systems the emphasis willbe on how the interfaces in the whole assembly system can be solved. Sensory integration is a key element inachieving flexibility in the assembly operations. A critical point is how the system can be constructed cheaply and reliably using only simple low cost sensors. An architecture providing a solution to these requirements has been designed and realized using a standard scara robot as a basic component.
