STRUCTURED LIGHT BASED STEREO VISION FOR COORDINATION OF MULTIPLE ROBOTS

Gui Yun Tian, Duke Gledhill

Abstract

This paper reports a method of coordinating multiple robots for 3D-object handling using structured light based stereo vision. The system structure of using two robots (puma and staubli) for playing chess has been proposed. The key techniques for surface reconstruction and rejection of ‘spike’ are discussed. The feature of the active vision system for 3D object acquisition and their application for robotics and automation are introduced. Following experimental studies, conclusion and further work have been derived.
