This paper discusses the integration of model based computer vision with a robot planning system. The vision system deals with structured objects with several movable parts (the "Task Panel"). The robot planning system controls a T3-746 manipulator that has a gripper and a wrist mounted camera. There are two control functions: move the gripper into position for manipulating the panel fixtures (doors, latches, etc.), and move the camera into positions preferred by the vision system. This paper emphasizes the issues related to repositioning the camera for improved viewpoints.
