Remanufacturing has received increasing attention for environmental protection and resource conservation considerations. Disassembly is a crucial step in remanufacturing, is always done manually which is inefficient while robotic disassembly can improve the efficiency of the disassembly. Aiming at the problem of product connector recognition during the robotic disassembly process, we analyze the template matching and feature matching principles based on two-dimensional images. To reduce the computational complexity of traditional template matching, a stepwise search strategy combining coarse and fine is proposed. Based on this a product connector recognition algorithm based on fast template matching and a product connector recognition algorithm based on feature matching is designed. Taking bolts and hexagon nuts as examples, the recognition effects of the two algorithms are compared and analyzed.
