Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present a low-cost vision based system for handling of hazardous waste in an unstructured environment. The prototype system described shows the feasibility of sorting and removal of randomly mixed and oriented flexible objects from a bin using inexpensive and widely available hardware. Our experiments show that the utilization of even the simplest constructs is sufficient for the manipulation of flexible objects.
