ICVS 2015 will feature 2 highly interesting half-day tutorials.
- “Tutorial on Commercial Industrial Vision Systems“
- “An Open-source Recipe for Teaching/Learning Robotics with a Simulator“
Both tutorials will take place on Thursday, July 9.
Tutorial 1 will be in the morning and Tutorial 2 in the afternoon.
In this half-day tutorial we will introduce typical machine vision applications with matching off-the-shelf products. Then we will move on to state-of-the-art new developments and 3D Vision products addressing the rising needs for more advanced and flexible solutions. When turnkey solutions are not enough advanced, libraries are used to custom make vision systems. We present the tools and some of the camera self-diagnostics schemes we use to solve this type of applications for real production lines running 24/7. Finally, we will go through some cases with state-of-the-art picking including bin picking and quality inspection.
This tutorial presents a cross-platform robot development and simulation environment that can be installed in five minutes and that allows students to write control, navigation, vision or manipulation algorithms in a hundred lines of Matlab or Python code. The tutorial relies on the V-REP robot simulator, and on the Matlab Robotics Toolbox (RTB). The key feature of this combination is its ease of use – both tools are trivial to install. The tutorial is intended for teachers and students. Students will install the simulation environment on their laptop and learn everything they need to know to start implementing and testing robot algorithms. Teachers will return home with a ready-to-use recipe for organizing a master-level robotics project. This event follows our successful tutorial at IROS 2014. In this instance, we will focus on providing hands-on experience to the audience with an hour-long practice session.
