Orienting Toleranced
Polygonal Parts
Abstract
Parts manufactured to tolerances have variations in shape. Most
previous work in robotic manipulation assumes that parts do not
have shape variations. Orienting devices such as bowl feeders of-
ten fail due to variations in part shape. We study the effects of
uncertainty in part shape on orienting to develop systems that can
orient toleranced polygonal parts. We present a tolerance model
in which the part center of mass and vertices lie in circular uncer-
tainty zones around their nominal positions. The variations in part
