    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    In order to achieve increased flexibility on robotic production lines an investigation of the rovbot bin-picking problem is presented. In the paper, the limitations related to previous attempts to solve the problem are pointed uot and a set of innovative methods are presented. The main elements herein is the improved capabilities to handle cylindrical objects under various lightning conditions and cylinder materials and an improved accuracy in the determination of cylinder position and orientation. The present methods employ vision with structured light, basic geometric relations and vision sub-pixel precision methods to make a working system. Actual tests are presented using an ASEA 2000 robot.
