Infrared light is the key to efficient waste recycling.
Low-cost near infrared spectrometers have a potentially wide market in material characterization, material sorting, gas monitoring and food quality control.A time-of-flight camera providing 3D data is used for navigation of a snakelike pipe inspection robot.
Ensuring crew safety is a prime concern in spacecrafts and other closed manned habitats. SINTEF has developed equipment for early detection of toxic, harmful or unpleasant gases. [Illustration: European Space Agency]
3D vision and 3D pose estimation allow robots to pick randomly organized parts.
Automatic 3D inspection of automotive components. Dimensions such as distances, radii and angles are measured and checked against tolerances given on the CAD model.
3D vision and object recognition for locating and changing a sensor battery with a robotMachine vision enables automatic camera area surveillance.
Nofima and SINTEF, in cooperation with QVision, have investigated the possibility of measuring the fat content of inhomogeneous pork trimmings in large plastic boxes.
Sensor fusion and statistical data analysis used to detect deviations during automatic inspection rounds on a remotely operated oil & gas platform located offshore.
Data from weather sensors and advanced physical models predict runway behaviour.
Robust pattern recognition techniques necessary for decoding matrix bar codes captured by mobile phone cameras with poor optics.
Navigating mobile robot manipulators seamlessly in more complex dynamic environments is inherently difficult. Important challenges regarding real-time 3D mapping and synchronized robot arm and base navigation must be addressed in order to make such systems feasible, allowing for more robotic applications in the future.
