Abstract

There is an increasing number of applications requiring the use of robotics technologies for remote intervention in inaccessible areas. The main objective of the work described in this paper is to provide a vision-based aid to an operator controlling a manipulator arm aboard a mobile platform. The aim is not to replace the operator but, rather, make use of the onboard sensors to automate, under operator supervision, some basic tasks. The task chosen for this work is to press an electrical power switch present in the mobile platform's environment and capable of being reached by the manipulator arm.
