Parametric Non-Circular Planetary Gear System Generator

Matlab software for generating non-circular planetary gear systems.

Design Inputs:

  • Arbitrary sun gear pitch curve, lobe and tooth count. (Sun gear is currently constrained to be radially symmetric with an integer lobe/tooth-count ratio)

  • Circular planet gear radius and tooth count.

  • Sun/Planet orbit ratio.

  • Gear tooth profile;  Involute, circular, arbitrary or null (pitch curve only)  

Design Output:

  • 2D gear profiles for sun, ring and planet gears in DXF-format.

Example Run: Sun:Ring:Planet 3:4:P

  • Sun gear form& tooth count: Rs = 4 + 4*cos(3*theta), 72-tooth.

  • Planet gear radius & tooth count: 1, 12-tooth.

  • Gear tooth profile:  Circular.

Automated Object Identification and Sorting

Machine Vision software for Automated Object Sorting.

Components and Workflow:

  • Basler color camera acquires object field with and software frame grabber.

  • Measuring color and geometry, Software discerns objects from image background.

  • Objects are classified against user defined parameters.  

  • Objects' of interest physical positions are determined.

  • Automated gripper removes specified objects based on position.

  • Camera verifies object removal through analysis of another frame grab.
