Visual servoing requires an object in the field of view of the camera, in order to control the robot evolution. Otherwise, the virtual link is broken and the control loop cannot continue to be closed. In this paper, a novel approach is presented in order to guarantee that the object remains in the field of view of the camera during the whole robot motion. It consists in tracking an iteratively computed trajectory. A position based modeling adapted to a moving target object is established, and is used to control the trajectory. A nonlinear decoupling approach is then used to control the robot. Experiments, demonstrating the capabilities of this approach, have been conducted on a Cartesian robot connected to a real time vision system, with a CCD camera mounted on the end effector of the robot.
