Reducing Localization Error of Vision-Guided Industrial Robots



Marek Franaszek, Geraldine S. Cheok, Jeremy A. Marvel


In many manufacturing applications, such as automated drilling or inspection of large parts, accurate knowledge of both position and orientation is critical. In this paper, a method for reducing robot end-effector position and orientation error is presented. Experimental results show that the method can reduce the median position error by 97% (to 0.3 mm) and the median orientation error by 57% (to 0.27 deg). Limitations of the method caused by the hand-eye calibration are discussed.
