Dismantling operation in the engine compartment of a used car
VISDOMis an acronym standing for
Operations of used
VISDOMis a program system created for dismantling tasks. These tasks are controlled by machine vision using tracking processes in the 3D scene domain. For a detailed description of the tracking and the controlling processes see [Tonko 97] and other literature on our publication page.
VISDOMcan not only operate in a relatively simple laboratory scene, where two blocks have to be dismantled by loosening two fixing screws, but in addition also in a much more complex scene, namely in the engine compartment of a used car, where car parts like the battery have to be gripped by a dismantling robot and moved out of the engine compartment.
As an additional application, the automatic localization and tracking of ship parts is examined in the scope of the VIGOR project. A video sequence showing a mockup tracked real-time can be found at http://i21www.ira.uka.de/visdom/tracking.html.
