I have an object like attached in image.
It is hanging vertical (its position may change but static object) and I want to grasp it using 6DOF Robotic arm. I am Using camera to detect object.
I am trying to estimate its 6D pose w.r.t to camera. The question is do I need to estimate 6D pose of object in order to grasp it? Is that really required, or is my thinking incorrect?
What are the different ways to grasp it using camera?
Can I use just distance between camera and object (after detection), and tell robot to pick at that distance in the middle by gripper? If this is possible, how can I give value of X;Y;Z; ROLL; PITCH; YAW for the pick?
Can anyone guide me to correct path?
