Title (EN) OBJECT-LEARNING ROBOT AND METHOD
(FR) ROBOT DE RECONNAISSANCE D'OBJET ET PROCÉDÉ
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to an object-learning robot and corresponding method. The robot comprises a gripper (14) for holding an object (11) to be learned to the robot (10); an optical system (16) having a field of view for introducing the object (11) to the robot (10) and for observing the gripper (14) and the object (11) held by the gripper (14); an input device (26) for providing an object identity of the object to be learned to the robot (10); a controller (24) for controlling the motion of the gripper (14) according to a predetermined movement pattern; and an image processing means (28) for analyzing image data obtained from the optical system (16) identifying the object (11) for association with the object identity. This enables the robot to learn the identity of new objects in a dynamic environment, even without an offline period for learning.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un robot de reconnaissance d'objet et un procédé correspondant. Le robot comprend une pince (14) conçue pour maintenir un objet (11) devant être reconnu par le robot (10); un système optique (16) doté d'un champ de vision conçu pour l'introduction de l'objet (11) dans le robot (10) et pour observer la pince (14) et l'objet (11) maintenu par la pince (14); un dispositif d'entrée (26) conçu pour fournir une identité d'objet relative à l'objet devant être reconnu par le robot (10); un contrôleur (24) conçu pour contrôler le mouvement de la pince (14) selon un modèle de mouvement prédéfini; et un moyen de traitement d'image (28) conçu pour analyser les données d'image obtenues à partir du système optique (16) identifiant l'objet (11) en vue d'une association avec l'identité de l'objet. Ceci permet au robot de connaître l'identité de nouveaux objets dans un environnement dynamique, même sans période de reconnaissance hors ligne.
