A Vision-guided, Semi-autonomous System Applied to a Robotic Coating Application

This paper describes a new semi-autonomous, calibration-free system which integrates a user-friendly graphical interface, several cameras, a laser pointer mounted on a two-axis pan/tilt unit, and a six degree-of-freedom robot. The details of the system will be discussed in reference to the problem of coating a workpiece of unknown geometry that is… (More)
