The performance of a vision system for a robot using visualservo control is very dependent upon the placement of thecamera. The placement on robot attached positions other thanat the end-effector of the robot manipulator has generally notbeen considered. In this paper we examine the practical issuesfor different placements of the camera on the robot manipulatorfor the purpose of visual servo control. An animated computermodel was developed to aid in the evaluation of various visionsensor placements. We present the results of the analysis and make recommendations.
