Paper Abstract

A simple vision based system to perform a contactless coupling, rather than a hardware hook is suggested. The method facilitates automatic convoy formation and management. The vision technique uses 3 landmarks and a CCD camera. Using a geometric approach that capitalizes the excellent angular resolution of CCD cameras, the position and orientation of the camera are estimated in respect to the landmarks. Experimental results show the reliability of the technique in operating contexts.
