Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR PROVIDING SINGULATION OF OBJECTS FOR PROCESSING USING OBJECT MOVEMENT REDISTRIBUTION
Abstract:
A processing system including a singulation system is disclosed. The singulation system includes a conveying system (19) for moving objects (14) to be processed from a source area along a first direction, a detection system (32) for detecting objects at the conveying system, and for selecting certain selected objects for redistribution on the conveying system, and a movement redistribution system for redistributing the certain selected objects on the conveying system for providing a singulated stream of objects.
