Our mission is to select an item from a collection of various object, determine the nature of the item and place each into a more desirable location. In an attempt to acquire a full visualization of the object it will become necessary to set the object on a surface and grasp at an angle allowing features that were previously hidden to be registered. The object can then be placed in a desired location based on it's structure. Applications include sorting of parts in an industrial setting, dishes, clothing and toys in a domestic setting, or debris analysis during post disaster events. Planning will become necessary to move the object in the workspace for visualization, maintaining an unobstructed line of sight to the object, and proper gripping location for analysis of the second half of the object.
