Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS THAT IMPROVE ALIGNMENT OF A ROBOTIC ARM TO AN OBJECT
Abstract:
Systems and methods that improve alignment of a robotic arm to an object or parts of the object. Sensors sense a 3D protrusion on the object and a salient regular surface to which the 3D protrusion attaches. A method infers, based on a known geometry of the object, a component of the object that is next to the 3D protrusion and not detectable with the sensors. The robotic arm moves, based on a location of the 3D protrusion and a location of the component, with respect to the component.
