Title (EN) A METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR SORTING
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE TRI
Abstract:
(EN) A method of sorting is described and which includes a step of acquiring a multiplicity of synchronized image signals of a product stream which is to be sorted; generating a multiplicity of fused sensor signals; forming an image model previously acquired from the objects to be sorted; identifying objects in the product stream, and generating object presence and defect signals; determining a spatial orientation of the objects in the product stream; detecting the defects and removing the defects from the product stream.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé de tri qui comprend une étape consistant : à acquérir une multiplicité de signaux d'image synchronisés d'un flux de produits à trier ; à générer une multiplicité de signaux de capteur fusionnés ; à former un modèle d'image précédemment acquis à partir des objets à trier ; à identifier des objets dans le flux de produits, et générer des signaux de présence et de défauts d'objet ; à déterminer une orientation spatiale des objets dans le flux de produits ; à détecter des défauts et éliminer des défauts du flux de produits.
