Our Bin Picking System, Step by Step
InPicker allows to identify and determine the location of objects placed in bulk filled bins, boxes, racks, conveyors, etc.
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.
The InPicker Solution
InPicker consists of a hardware solution (vision + robot) and software (imaging + communications) that allows to extract randomly sorted parts from bins.
InPicker solves the Bin Picking application in 7 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 to determine their 3D orientation and position as well as their different rotations.
All possible ways in which the robot can extract the detected parts are calculated.
Grasping strategies that may pose a risk of collision in the robot's path are screened out and discarded.
Once the most appropriate part is selected, this one is accurately and safely extracted by the robot.
