TECHNICAL GUEST POST: Reactive grasping using tactile sensors (Fraunhofer-IFF)

Industrial bin-picking applications usually involve a vision system. These systems identify and localize the objects to be picked, and also often suggest an optimal picking strategy. In such situations, the robot moves from its original position to the defined grasp position of the object inside the bin (as defined by the vision system), grasps the object, and moves it to the final placing position. However this whole process raises some …Read More
