A complete algorithm for designing passive fences to orient parts

  title={A complete algorithm for designing passive fences to orient parts},
  author={Jeff Wiegley and Kenneth Y. Goldberg and Michael A. Peshkin and Mike Brokowski},
Peshkin and Sanderson showed that parts can be aligned as they move on a conveyor belt against a pass ive sequence of fences In this paper we describe the rst complete algorithm to design such sequences for a given convex polygonal part The algorithm is com plete in the sense that it is guaranteed to nd a design if one exists and to terminate with a negative report oth erwise Based on an exact breadth rst search of the design space the algorithm is also guaranteed to nd the design requiring the… CONTINUE READING
