Hello Everyone,

I am a newbie to ROS.

I have a task wherein there is a running conveyor belt with objects on it which have to be picked up a Robotic Arm and placed at some other location all with getting data from a Microsoft Kinect.

I would like to know of some ideas / algorithms that one may use in such a scenario to accomplish this task. Some help with some tools to accomplish this task would also be helpful.

Cheers, Jalashwa

A team of researches at CMU did this a while back: https://www.cs.cmu.edu/~maxim/files/p... and even got an article in IEEE spectrum about their work: http://spectrum.ieee.org/automaton/ro...

Hi Hendrix, I did spot that research paper a while ago.

Would you recommend me using MoveIt! for my application ?

I'm sorry if I sound a bit stupid :(

I'm not sure; I can't tell from their research paper if they were using MoveIt! or not.
