SCAPE is a new computer vision system suitable for flexible grasping in industrial robot-vision applications. The system can be used when solid objects of known shape are supplied to a production process in random orientation and position on a conveyer belt. Key features are:
SCAPE has been tested in a laboratory set-up. A prototype is developed at the moment in order to explore the potential of the system in industry. The prototype will give valuable information on speed, robustness, accuracy, limits of object complexity, optimum illumination, fail rates, etc.
