The ItemPick component is an optional component that runs on board the rc_visard. It provides an out-of-the-box perception solution for robotic pick-and-place applications with suction grippers. ItemPick computes possible grasp poses for the suction device. Each suggested grasp includes a quality value related to the surface available for grasping. Visualization streams are available for parameter configuration and application tuning.
ItemPick is also ready to be used for bin-picking applications. It offers a load carrier detection solution to provide grasps for items inside the load carrier.
The ItemPick component works with both static and robot-mounted rc_visard devices and can optionally be combined with the on-board Hand-eye calibration component to provide grasp poses in the user-configured external reference frame.
The ItemPick component is optional and requires a separate license to be purchased.
