Control design and implementation of intelligent vehicle with robot arm and computer vision

This paper proposes the control design and implementation of an intelligent vehicle combined with robotic manipulator and computer vision. It can be roughly divided into three main directions for the design of intelligent vehicle, including path planning of mobile vehicle, position control of robot arm system and appropriate applications of image recognition. For the consideration of path planning of vehicle system and position control of robot arm, the CCD camera installed on the clip of robot arm is applied to capture target images with appropriate analysis and application.

That is to say, the utilization of image processing is applied for vehicle moving, object grabbing and destination placing. In addition, with various shapes and colors of object bricks, the practical implementation of intelligent vehicle design is given to illustrate the successful achievement of pick-and-place control purpose.
