This paper focuses on the challenges of vision-based motion planning for industrial manipulators. Our approach is aimed at planning paths that are within the sensing and actuation limits of industrial hardware and software. Building on recent advances in path planning, our planner augments probabilistic road maps with vision-based constraints. The resulting planner finds collision-free paths that simultaneously avoid occlusions of an image target and keep the target within the field of view of… CONTINUE READING
