Title: Review of Research on the Ground Truth Systems for Evaluating Part Identification Systems
Published: April 23, 2013
Abstract: In this report we discuss different types of potential ground-truth systems that could be used to test part identification systems for manufacturing assembly applications. We discuss four main ways of acquiring ground truth for evaluating part recognition/identification systems: 1) synthetic and physics based simulation, 3) manual annotation or labeling of ground-truth systems, 3) platform- based ground-truth systems, and 4) physically sensed ground-truth systems. We discuss previous efforts and discuss the different physical quantities used for ground-truth systems. In this report, we focus on static parts and the sizes of parts are in the range of 30 cm x 30 cm x 30 cm volume or smaller.
