  • Publication number: 20240087277
    Abstract: A control method of a fastening tool for fastening a component part includes photographing a fastening portion of the component part through a camera portion mounted on the fastening tool. The control method includes pre-processing that rotates an input image, which has been photographed by the camera portion, to match with representative model image. The control method includes estimating the fastening portion through an inference process through a convolutional neural network (CNN) algorithm-based image classification work on a video input image of a same fastening portion finished with the pre-processing work. The control method also includes setting a torque value that is matched with a recognized fastening portion when a probability value of the fastening portion in the inference process exceeds a predetermined reference ratio.
