Paper Abstract

This paper describes research into a new integrated robot vision system and manipulator controller. The technique uses a combination of stereoscopic vision using standard television cameras, structured lighting and photogrammetry to obtain the relative three dimensional positions of a robot manipulator and a target object. The manipulator is then moved towards the object using the vision system to provide feedback of the manipulator position. Having shown that it is possible to apply photogrammetric techniques to real time robot manipulator control the emphasis of the research has been directed to the use of non standard imaging devices, ie linescan cameras, for the data collection.
