V-REP: Robotic Simulation to Demonstrate Pick-and-Place Tasks of Coloured Shapes
This video shows two ABB IRB360 robots that perform a pick-and-place task of colored shapes. The shape's position, orientation and color is extracted by a camera sensor that does blob detection. That information is then forwarded to the robots that correctly pick, orient, then place the shapes into containers. The blob detection is performed by a built-in filter component: in V-REP, image processing can be easily performed by simply combining several filters into an image processing block. External filters are of course also supported through various extension mechanisms (e.g. plugins).
Run time - 1:13 minutes.
