Our Bin Picking System, Step by Step
InPicker allows to identify and determine the location of objects piled in a container.
After selecting the best candidate, the system determines the position of the object in a 3D space, guiding the robot gripper with the most precise orientation, in order to extract the selected element. In the process of moving the robot arm, the system takes into account the position of the container and the stacked parts to avoid any possible collision.
InPicker consists of a hardware solution (vision + robot) and software (image analysis + communications) that allows to extract randomly sorted parts from containers.
InPicker solves the Bin Picking application in 6 steps:
A 2D or 3D camera is used to obtain an image of the parts and the work environment.
Interprets the environment in 3D to identify the objects of interest and determine any obstacles.
Parts are detected in the scene by determining their 3D orientation position and their different rotations.
All possible perspectives in which the robot can grasp the detected parts are calculated.
Grasping positions that may pose a risk of collision in the robot's path are screened out and discarded.
The most appropriate one is selected so that it can be extracted accurately and safely by the robot and then placed in the next production process.
