Paper Title
Contour Matching and Planar Alignment using Optimal Transformation Parameters

In industrial automation systems, it is of immense importance to ensure precise and accurate positioning of a part to meet sustained quality requirements. The proposed algorithm minimizes planar translation and rotation errors during positioning of an object in a typical production process Disoriented object contour information was extracted using the existing image pre-processing methods. The proposed algorithm, determines the unknown planar translation and rotation parameters of the transformation matrix, that maps the template object contour points to the corresponding disoriented object points. Another algorithm for contour matching is coupled with parameter identification method to correct the arbitrary start location for the disoriented object contour points. Keywords: Contour Matching, Object Alignment, Transformation Parameter.
