In industrial robotics, camera systems are very often used to detect objects and avoid collisions. However, the software that enables object detection is often unable to do this under varying light conditions because it is based on classical algorithms. Therefore, robots are often completely isolated from external light influences in their cells, which is no longer possible with the increasing use of cobots. With the help of an image recognition AI, it was achieved in this project that objects could be successfully found even without additional light sources and that all light influences could be eliminated.
