A framework for automed object detection and gripping

This master thesis, coming out from a collaboration with IsaacTeam and COMAU, focused on the development of a fully-functional framework for robotics applications development, complete of a full built-in solution for object detection and gripping. The default vision pipeline is based onto the excellent Line-MOD algorithm, while the default gripping Continue Reading →

Vision system, part 1: the hardware

This post and the following ones will contain some information about the assembly moving Isaac’s eyes, in particular about the Robotis Dynamixel AX-12 servo-motors and how to interface them with a microcontroller. This first post focuses on the lower layers (physical connections and data-link layer of the protocol, i.e. “wiring Continue Reading →
