  • Publication number: 20200233898
    Abstract: Techniques for prioritizing images associated with an item to display an appropriate image based on a query are described herein. For example, an attention score for an item attribute in an image of an item may be generated based at least in part on a model that uses one or more images of the item. The item attribute for the item associated with a query may be obtained. A plurality of items may be determined based at least in part on the item attribute being associated with the plurality of items where an individual item of the plurality of items includes a plurality of images of the item. The plurality of images of the individual item may be ranked based at least in part on corresponding attention scores associated with each image of the plurality of images.

  • Patent number: 10099381
    Abstract: Described are techniques for storing and retrieving items using a robotic device for moving items. Any combinations of image data depicting a manipulator interacting with an item, sensor data from sensors instrumenting the manipulator or item, item data regarding characteristics of the item, and constraint data relating to characteristics of the robotic device may be used to generate one or more configurations for the robotic device. The configurations may include points of contact and force vectors for contacting the item using the robotic device.

  • Publication number: 20170301134
    Abstract: To allow simple creation of three-dimensional documentation for a utility article (1) made up of multiple parts (T), image parameters (BP) of at least one illustration (A) of the utility article (1) in existing two-dimensional documentation (2) are ascertained, a 3D model (M) of the utility article (1) with the ascertained image parameters (BP) is aligned with the illustration (A), and, based on a comparison of the two-dimensional illustration (A) and of the 3D model (M) to the ascertained image parameters (BP) from the two-dimensional illustration (A), additional information is obtained, which together with the 3D model (M) forms the three-dimensional documentation (10) of the utility article (1).

  • Patent number: 9731420
    Abstract: Described are techniques for storing and retrieving items using a robotic manipulator. Images depicting a human interacting with an item, sensor data from sensors instrumenting the human or item, data regarding physical characteristics of the item, and constraint data relating to the robotic manipulator or the item may be used to generate one or more configurations for the robotic manipulator. The configurations may include points of contact and force vectors for contacting the item using the robotic manipulator.

  • Patent number: 9381645
    Abstract: Described are techniques for storing and retrieving items using a robotic manipulator. Images depicting a human interacting with an item, sensor data from sensors instrumenting the human or item, data regarding physical characteristics of the item, and constraint data relating to the robotic manipulator may be used to generate one or more configurations for the robotic manipulator. Points of contact and force vectors of the configurations may correspond to the points of contact and force vectors determined from the images and sensor data.
