Abstract
Batting/throwing robots

This paper introduces high-speed vision the authors developed, together with its applications. Architecture and development examples of high-speed vision are shown first in the sections that follow, then target tracking using active vision is explained. High-speed vision applied to robot control, design guidelines, and the development system for a high-speed robot are then introduced as examples. High-speed robot tasks, including dynamic manipulation and handling of soft objects, are explained and then book flipping scanning – an image analysis application – is explained followed by 1 ms auto pan/tilt and micro visual feedback, which are optical applications.
