Robot at Factory 4.0: An Auto-Referee Proposal Based on Artificial Vision Chapter Conference Paper uri icon


  • The robotization and automation of tasks are relevant processes and of great relevance to be considered nowadays. This work aims to turn the manual action of assigning the score for the robotic competition Robot at Factory 4.0 by an automatic referee. Specifically, the aim is to represent the real space in a set of computational information using computer vision, localization and mapping techniques. One of the crucial processes to achieve this goal involved the adaptive calibration of the parameters of a digital camera through visual references and tracking of objects, which resulted in a fully functional, robust and dynamic system that is capable of mapping the competition’s objects accurately and correctly performing the referee’s tasks.
  • This work is financed by National Funds through the Portuguese funding agency, FCT - Funda¸c˜ao para a Ciˆencia e a Tecnologia, within projects LA/P/0063/2020 and POCI-01-0247-FEDER-072638, co-funded by FEDER through COMPETE 2020. Authors acknowledge 5DPO RobotAtFactory team for making their time and robot available to conduct tests. The project that gave rise to these results received the support of a fellowship from “la Caixa” Foundation (ID 100010434). The fellowship code is LCF/BQ/DI20/11780028
