The work presented in this paper belongs to the realm of robotics and computer vision. The problem we seek to solve is the accomplishment of robotics tasks using visual features provided by a special sensor, mounted on a robot end effector. This sensor consists of two laser stripes fixed rigidly to a camera, projecting planar light on the scene. First, we briefly describe the classical visual servoing approach. We then generalize this approach to the case of our special sensor by considering its interaction with respect to a sphere. This interaction permits us to establish a kinematics relation between the sensor and the scene. Finally, both in simulation and in our experimental cell, the results are presented. They concern the positioning task with respect to a sphere, and show the robustness and the stability of the control scheme
