Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


An intuitive and convenient visually guided interface for controlling a robot with six degrees of freedom is proposed. Two orthogonal cameras are used to track the position and the orientation of the hand of the user. As a result, the user can control the robotic arm in a natural way.
