Our past work in integrating machine vision technology, industrial systems and robotic applications led to a successful research project with Braintech Canada Inc. on vision guided bin picking, including partnerships with ABB (the world’s largest producer of industrial robots) and Toyota USA. This effort, in partnership with the Laboratory for Computational Intelligence, resulted in industrially appropriate dynamic collision avoidance, visibility computation, visual servoing and grasp planning methods.
We are currently developing strategies for vision guided teach-by-demonstration for industrial manipulators that utilize user demonstrations to generalize the task. We are also developing search strategies applied to “lost targets” in robot visual servoing applications. Our ongoing work on visual servoing for target interception is supported by Hyundai Heavy Industries Robotics Division.
