HALCON 8.0 finds an object in arbitrary 3D poses and orientations by matching a pre-trained CAD model.

HALCON 8.0 finds an object in arbitrary 3D poses and orientations by matching a pre-trained CAD model.

“3rd Generation Matching” eases Bin Picking

From now on, bin picking is possible without any greater effort. Hence, the software library for machine vision HALCON 8.0 by MVTec (Munich, Germany) enables the identification of arbitrarily orientated objects as a standard technology (“3rd Generation Matching”).

Up to now, HALCON’s powerful shape-based matching already allowed the fast, reliable, and robust identification of 2D objects. With the new version 8.0, this also applies for 3D objects in arbitrary 3D positions and orientations. For this purpose, only a CAD model of the object has to be imported and trained. For this, HALCON 8.0 was extended to support the industrial standard to read DXF files.

During the training of the CAD model, HALCON computes the two-dimensional projections of the possible 3D poses of the object onto the image. Therefore, the imaging system needs only one camera. Primarily, the 3D object recognition by HALCON provides an all new possibility for robotics. Time-consuming special programming as well as stereo assemblies with two cameras are no longer necessary. Now, robots can identify scattered objects in their exact 3D pose and pick them up.

Because of its speed, HALCON’s 3rd Generation Matching also enables real-time applications. The 3D object recognition is not only fast and reliable, but also robust against variable illumination. More information: http://www.halcon.com
