Paper Abstract

A new approach for recognizing 3-D objects using a combined overhead and eye-in-hand vision system is presented. A novel eye-in-hand vision system using a fiber-optic image array is described. The significance of this approach is the fast and accurate recognition of 3-D object information compared to traditional stereo image processing. For the recognition of 3-D objects, the over-head vision system will take 2-D top view image and the eye-in-hand vision system will take side view images orthogonal to the top view image plane. We have developed and demonstrated a unique approach to integrate this 2-D information into a 3-D representation based on a new approach called "3-D Volumetric Descrip-tion from 2-D Orthogonal Projections". The Unimate PUMA 560 and TRAPIX 5500 real-time image processor have been used to test the success of the entire system.
