I'm wondering how feasible it is to create a machine that can separate clothing from a basket.
At the most basic level it would distinguish between tops, pants, button downs and socks
Programmatically, I'd image this would require training a neural network to recognize these items, but in real time it becomes exponentially difficult to do this in a small space at a fast rate:
- pick up an item
- lay it in such a way that is recognizable
- deduce whether it is a top, button down, etc.
- sort it accordingly
If this sounds ridiculous please let me know...
If it is possible :
would this be based on some sort of computer vision? or only a well trained neural network?
Any insight is much appreciated!
