rc_reason SilhouetteMatch Software Module
By: Roboception GmbH
The rc_reason SilhouetteMatch Module detects position and orientation of comparatively flat objects that are positioned on a plane, by matching the scene at hand to a previously taught template.
Detection of shallow objects, calculation of their 3D pose I Teaching of new objects provided as a service I Automatic and flexible detection of the base plane I Works with static and robot-mounted sensors I On-board data processing: No external hardware required
The rc_reason SilhouetteMatch Module is an optional software component that can be easily activated on-board any rc_visard and operated through the sensor’s standard interface. It enables the rc_visard to detect comparatively flat objects lying on a planar surface in unmixed scenes. For each object, the 3D position and orientation is determined.
The rc_reason SilhouetteMatch requires a template of the objects that are to be detected. Creation of this template is offered as a service, teaching of the first ten objects being included with the license cost. Users simply upload the CAD model (alternatively: a recording of the object with an rc_visard) and Roboception provides the necessary template.
rc_reason SilhouetteMatch automatically detects the base-plane of the scene at hand, which is then stored on the rc_visard in order to be occluded during the sensing operation. Typical applications include machine tending or emptying load carriers of several (separated) layers of objects.
