Many of the most fundamental examples in probability involve the pose statistics of coins and dice as they are dropped on a flat surface. For these parts, the probability assigned to each stable face is justified based on part symmetry, although most gamblers are familiar with the possibility of loaded dice. In industrial part feeding, parts also arrive in random orientations. We consider the following problem: given part geometry and parameters such as center of mass, estimate the probability… CONTINUE READING
