Abstract

There is a great need of reducing human effort in each and every span of industrial engineering. The paper deals in a robotic arm that fetches objects from a conveyor belt and does some dedicated work say packing the objects in the same color of packaging as that of object or segregating the objects on the basis of color or geometry. An overhead camera is mounted perpendicular to the belt at some specified height which would be sending recorded images to the processing unit and processing unit would be instructing the robotic arm to pick up some objects. The processing unit uses image processing to instruct the arm.
