High-Speed Texture Tracking for Automatic Sewing Machine:
The major goal of this project is to develop an automated apparel manufacturing system. Given a roll of fabric, the system takes different pieces of fabrics and produces customized jeans or clothes. During the fabrication process, the cut fabrics travel through the work-cell from the loading zone to the transportation zone, integration zone, and finally the sewing zone. Our main objective, as a vision group in this project, is to constantly monitor the fabric in real-time and provide feedback to the control system. We have developed two vision systems across the entire work-cell: overhead vision system (OHVS) and high-speed vision system (HSVS).
