The 8th IFToMM D-A-CH conference (International Federation for the Promotion of Mechanism and Machine Science, www.iftomm.net) was held on February 24-25, 2022. Due to the restrictions related to the Corona pandemic, the conference was once again set up in an online format this year.
IFToMM is one of the largest international associations in the field of theoretical and practical research of mechanisms and machines and their application in industry and practice. Due to its international networking, IFToMM offers especially young researchers and developers an ideal platform to cooperate with colleagues from all over the world in this promising field.
As part of the Robotix Academy, Ms. Xiaomei Xu, a PhD student at ZeMA – Zentrum für Mechatronik und Automatisierungstechnik gGmbH in Saarbrücken, Germany, gave a presentation on An approach to improve the pose determination of a 3D camera system based on reference measurements, K-nearest neighbors and a weighting function for robotics applications.
In the conference, an approach to improve the pose determination of a 3D camera system based on the use of reference measurements and their computation using the K-nearest neighbor (KNN) method as well as a weighting function will be presented. This reduced the error in the position determination of the selected 3D camera from 15-40 mm to 1-3 mm. A high correlation between the tilt angle 𝜃, rotation axis and error combines weighting function and K nearest neighbor to realize the 3D pose determination ideal under different tilt angles and different heights.
