Using Partial Sensor
Information to
Orient Parts
Parts orienting, the process of bringing parts in initially unknown
orientations to a goal orientation, is an important aspect of auto-
mated assembly. The most common industrial orienting systems are
vibratory bowl feeders, which use the shape and mass properties of
parts to orient them. Bowl feeders rely on a sequence of mechanical
operations and typically do not use sensors. In this paper, we de-
scribe the use of partial information sensors along with a sequence
