Moving part recognition and automatic pick and place using an industrial robot

1996-01-01
Robotics research continuously seeks to improve productivity in manufacturing automation. With the recent advances in the areas of vision and sensing, robots have become a major element of today's industrial world. They have been beneficial in replacing humans not only in tasks at which robots are more efficient but also in those that humans find undesirable because they are strenuous, boring, difficult, or hazardous. IF. the last several yeats, more and more efforts have been put in the integration of multiple sensors into robot systems. The goal is to make robots more adaptive and flexible in unstructured or frequently changing environments, and to enable robots to execute intelligent tasks. Thus the robot productivity as well as applicability can be improved.

The learning and use of traversability affordance using range images on a mobile robot
Ugur, Emre; Dogar, Mehmet R.; Cakmak, Maya; Şahin, Erol (2007-04-14)
We are interested in how the concept of affordances can affect our view to autonomous robot control, and how the results obtained from autonomous robotics can be reflected back upon the discussion and studies on the concept of affordances. In this paper, we studied how a mobile robot, equipped with a 3D laser scanner, can learn to perceive the traversability affordance and use it to wander in a room filled with spheres, cylinders and boxes. The results showed that after learning, the robot can wander around...
Localization for mobile robots using skyline in panoramic images
Koku, Ahmet Buğra (Journal of the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture of Gazi University, 2019-01-01)
Advances in robotics liberated robots from factory floors by the end of 20th century. Use of robots in our daily lives is only expected to increase in time. Robots, while relieving us of the burden of tedious, hard and dangerous tasks, most of them are still expected to be territorial, i.e. they will operate in a predefined or rather bounded environment. For enhanced performance, a robot should be familiar with its territory. In this work, use of skylines extracted from panoramic images is studied in order ...
A programmable control unit for industrial applications
Güngör, Mustafa Kemal; Hızal, Mirzahan; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2003)
In this thesis, the automation of the long term and cyclic processes by using a programmable control unit is aimed. To achieve this goal, timing relays and various microcontrollers are investigated. PIC microcontroller is chosen to implement the control unit due to its advantages like high speed, Harvard and RISC architecture, low cost and flexibility for programming. Theory of the PIC microcontrollers is studied and a controller unit to be used in the mentioned processes is designed. Some features are adde...
Feature-based software asset modeling with domain specific kits
Altıntaş, Nesip İlker; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2007)
This study proposes an industrialization model, Software Factory Automation, for establishing software product lines. Major contributions of this thesis are the conceptualization of Domain Specific Kits (DSKs) and a domain design model for software product lines based on DSKs. The concept of DSK has been inspired by the way other industries have been successfully realizing factory automation for decades. DSKs, as fundamental building blocks, have been deeply elaborated with their characteristic properties a...
Exploring design requirements for educational robots used in K-12 education from educator’s perspective
Gürkanlı, Cengiz Hakan; Töre Yargın, Gülşen; Department of Industrial Design (2018)
Robotics field has broad application in human society and design space of robots even broader. In the last decades, robots were started to be used for various purposes after their first examples in industrial settings. Use of robots in various human work domains provide multiple benefits over other technological devices. Education is one of the challenging primary fields in which robots offer advantages over other technologies. Unlike other fields of robotics which requires advanced programming architecture...
