Object localization utilizing 3D point cloud clustering approach
Procedia CIRP, 53rd CIRP Conference on Manufacturing Systems
In this paper we present a novel method to recognize multiple workpieces on a flat surface, based on a 3D point cloud and a prebuilt pose database. First, the method identifies the main surface, which is the base of every following steps. The surface determines the plane stretched by $X$ and $Y$ axis, establishing the orientation of the objects on it and helping their isolated recognition. Isolation of objects is followed by determining their specific type and exact pose, based on the prebuilt database. The presented method is demonstrated by recognizing workpieces and tool in an assembly cell.
