Abstract

Automated packaging is becoming more and more interesting for various production sites even in Europe. However, in many companies the packaging process can only handle a limited amount of products. This leads to a very inflexible packaging and a bottle neck in the production. Most of the time for new products, the packaging system needs to be modified. One of the main components in an automated packaging process is the recognition and then the grasping of the objects that need to be packed. For different products mostly a different gripping system is required. In this paper, solutions from a research project are presented which enables the recognizing as a basis for flexible grasping of different products. These solutions includes a flexible pose recognition for different objects by a low cost system based on Kinect or or Asus Xtion cameras.
