Object Recognition with PointGrey Bumblebee2 [closed]

asked 2014-11-21 09:06:51 -0500

Hi All,

I have a PointGrey Bumblebee2 stereo vision camera that I am attempting to do object recognition with. The goal is to locate and object with the camera, use that to line the robot up with the object, then pick it up. Is there an object recognition package for this? I've found Object Recognition Kitchen but that requires openni, which doesn't work with the Bumblebee2 as it is not an RGB camera. Does anyone know of any object recognition packages that will work with the Bumblebee2?

I need to recognize cans, about half the size of an oil drum, with a flange at the top. I shall look into PCL and OpenCV.

With a stereo camera you can either recognize objects using the processed pointcloud or directly on the image. For that, I recommend you to take a look at PCL and OpenCV detection algorithms or example implementations.

With cans I would start detecting ellipses in the image, or if the cans have a specific colour I would use the color and the depth information to group different cans together.

This question is too localized.
