Automated Ship To Shore Crane Using LabVIEW

We are doing a project on Automation of container handling Ship To Shore cranes in ports using LabVIEW. We
have planned to use image acquisition and robotics modules for the project. We have learnt the basics of LabVIEW already but we are not
familiar with the robotics module. We need some expert assistance to help us prepare the VIs for the project.

We need to detect the specified container and move the spreader near it and pick the container and place it in  the stacking area.
I am attaching an image of the STS crane.
Please help to develop this project

You're expecting someone to do "develop" this project for free? Seriously?

You have to be kidding!  Really!?

 

You are taking on an application of this scope without any firm foundation in the language you will be using?  No mention of health and safety? Zero regard for technical data?  Just a cartoon for documentation?

 

If this is a real project- hire a consultant.

 

If this is homework (I suspect it is) fire the professor.

We are only doing a small prototype of it. We have developed a small vi to detect the shape of the container and save the coordinates of each container in a excel sheet using LabVIEW Vision assistant.We dont know how to move the crane to that coordinate and pick the container(need help here)

We want to know, which module should be used (Robotics Or Vision Assistant ) to complete this project.(need help here)
We are doing only the pick and place application of the crane in labview.
So please help us....

So, you have a system for finding your container, and outputting a co-ordinate. Great, thats one part done.

I would move away from excel, and keep it all within LV. 

 

Next step would be to have a play with your robotics module (I assume you have a model crane setup?) and see if you can get the crane moving.

 

Then you need to define a common co-ordinate system between the Vision section of your code and the physical crane section of your code, before you can get these two halves of your code talking to eachother.

 

Pretty vauge I know, but break your problem down into smaller managable parts is my advice.
