Interactive image processing has proved to be a valuable aid to prototype development for industrial inspection systems. This paper advocates extending its use to exploratory analysis of robot vision applications. Preliminary studies have shown that it is equally effective in this role, although it is not usually possible to achieve the computational speeds needed for real-time control of the robot using a software-based image processor. Its use, as in inspection research, is likely to be limited to algorithm design/selection. The Autoview image processor (British Robotic Systems Ltd.) has recently been interfaced to a Placemate 5 robot (Pendar Robotics Ltd.) and further programmable manipulation devices, including an xy-coordinate table and a stepping turntable are currently being connected. Using these and similar devices, research will be conducted into such tasks as assembly, Dalletisinq and robot-assisted inspection.
