Paper Abstract

This paper presents an application of an experimental robot vision system for flexible component handling. Operational details of system components are described. Emphasis is laid on information processing, system integration and overall control. The functions of the image processing part are described briefly including a summary of a new algorithm for outline approximations of component silhouettes. Advantages of this algorithm include its potential for recognizing overlapping, touching or partially visible objects. The overall system implementation is addressed in more detail, covering synchronization between sensor and robot, operating modes, and control hierarchy.
