Research on Workpiece Sorting System Based on Machine Vision Mechanism


This paper describes industrial sorting system, which is based on robot vision technology, introduces main image processing methodology used during development, and simulates algorithm with Matlab. Besides, we set up image processing algorithm library via C# program and realize recognition and location for regular geometry workpiece. Furthermore, we analyze camera model in vision algorithm library, calibrate the camera, process the image series, and resolve the identify problem for regular geometry workpiece with different colours.
