Controlling a Robotic arm for applications such as object sorting with the use of vision sensors would need a robust image processing algorithm to recognize and detect the target object. This paper is directed towards the development of the image processing algorithm which is a pre-requisite for the full operation of a pick and place Robotic arm intended for object sorting task For this type of task first the objects are detected, and this is accomplished by feature extraction algorithm. Next, the extracted image (parameters in compliance with the classifier) is sent to the classifier to recognize what object it is and once this is finalized, the output would be the type of the object along with it's coordinates to be ready for the Robotic Arm to execute the pick and place task The major challenge faced in developing this image processing algorithm was that upon making the test subjects in compliance with the classifier parameters, resizing of the images conceded in the loss of pixel data. Therefore, a centered image approach was taken. The accuracy of the classifier developed in this paper was 99.33% and for the feature extraction algorithm, the accuracy was 83.6443%. Finally, the overall system performance of the image processing algorithm developed after experimentation was 82.7162%
