There are two main stages involved into the project: the off-line and the on-line phases.
The off-line phase is devoted to the model acquisition of a set of objects that will be considered during the production line. A database of such models will be defined by adopting a reverse engineering approach that involves:
- data acquisition and pre-processing (off-line),
- 2D-3D segmentation,
- model fitting,
- features extraction.
The on-line phase is related to the line processing pipeline that involves:
- data acquisition (on-line);
- object extraction;
- features extraction;
- object recognition.
Three applicative scenarios will be taken into account that are characterised by increasing levels of complexity.
