This paper focuses on the development of a weakly calibrated three-view-based visual servoing control law applied to the laser steering process. It proposes to revisit the conventional trifocal constraints governing a three-view geometry for a more suitable use in the design of an efficient trifocal vision-based control. Thereby, an explicit control law is derived, without any matrix inversion, which allows to simply prove the global exponential stability of the control. Moreover, only ‘ twenty…

TLDR
A new stereo visual servoing (SVS) with decoupling properties as the state vectors are built from the two-view affine geometry and the visual measurements, which is motivated to better reject outliers, to ensure the epipolar constraint and to provide efficient decoupled rotational and translational kinematic control laws with closed-form interaction matrices.
