TRACKING PLANAR-TEXTURED OBJECTS - On the Way to Transport Objects in Packaging Industry by Throwing and Catching

Naeem Akhter

Abstract

In manufacturing systems transportation of objects can be optimized by throwing and catching them mechanically between work stations. There is a need to track thrown objects using visual sensors. Up to now only ball-shaped objects were tracked under controlled environment, where no orientation had to be considered. This work extends the task of object tracking to cuboid textured objects considering industrial environment. Indeed, tracking objects with respect to the robotics tasks to be achieved in a not too restricted environment remains an open issue. Thus, this work deals with efficient, flexible, and robust estimation of the object’s pose.
