Abstract:
A method performed by a robotic system (1), for identifying single objects (6) from a random assortment of objects (6). The robotic system (1) picks, among a random assortment of objects (6) on a presentation surface (33), an object (6) from the presentation surface (33) at a determined picking point (42). The robotic system (1) removes any remaining objects from the presentation surface (33). The robotic system (1) places the picked object (6) on the presentation surface (33). The robotic system (1) further analyzes the picked object (6) on the presentation surface (33), in order to identify a single object (6).
