Bin Picking (also referred to as Random Bin Picking, even sometimes referred to as "The Holy Grail in Sight") is a core problem in Computer vision and Robotics. The goal is to have a robot with sensors and cameras attached to it pick-up known objects with random poses out of a bin using a suction gripper, parallel gripper, or other kind of Robot end effector. The company Amazon is known to hold a competition focused on Bin Picking referred to as "Amazon Picking Challenge". Some notable companies actively working on Bin Picking include: Solomon 3D ,VISIO NERF , Scape Technologies, FANUC, Motoman, Photoneo, CapSen Robotics, Mujin, Bluewrist Inc., Pick-it.
