Distance Measurement on Black MDF Boards with Long-Range Laser Distance Sensors
MDF boards for furniture construction can have different colors and structures. In order to measure the distance to the black edges of the differently sized boards, a long-range laser distance sensor with wintec is installed on the side of the conveyor belt. This measures the distance to the MDF boards from a great distance. Based on the analog measurement data, the robot knows the exact position and size of the boards and can pick them up and move them. Neither the black edge nor ambient interference such as dust, ambient light or chips influence the measurement result.
