Paper Abstract

Parallel edges often provide a unique local feature for part recognition in manufacturing automation or robotic guidance applications. This paper discusses a simple parallel edge detection algorithm which takes the parallel edge as one entity instead of two separate edges. A special edge detection algorithm, step-state reasoning, is also discussed in this paper. The application of the algorithm and its accuracy and repeatability are discussed in the paper.
