Modeling and Analysis of a Humanoid Robot Active Stereo Vision Platform


Article Preview

Humanoid robot is not only expected to walk stably, but also is required to perform manipulation tasks autonomously in our work and living environment. This paper discusses the visual perception and the object manipulation based on visual servoing of a humanoid robot, an active robot vision model is built, and then the 3D location principle, the calibration method and precision of this model are analyzed. This active robot vision system with two DOF enlarges its visual field and the stereo is the most simple camera configuration for 3D position information.
