Paper Abstract

In autonomous manufacturing systems an important task is to recognize different 3D objects, e.g. workpieces. We have used the fact that different objects scatter laser light from a handscanner differently. To recognize the differences of the scattered light from the objects we have used Fourier transformation. It turns our that by using Fourier transformation we are able to recognize different objects and that this methods is a rather simple and inexpensive way to complement other object recognition systems, e.g. in robotic application.
