With half-year exchange to Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
In this project, I have implemented an FPGA-based vision system, integrated it into a motion stage, and performed the modeling and control of the visual servo system. Experimental results demonstrate the feasibility of using visual feedback for precision motion control. Below is a demo of the 1000 frames-per-second vision-in-the-loop system. Results of this project have been presented in ICT.OPEN.2012 (slides).
In this thesis, methods are provided to design high-speed vision systems, to evaluate delay and accuracy of vision algorithms, to design control laws that compensate for these constraints, and to find out among a large number of design options which is most suitable for a specific use case. This thesis is defended on 26 May 2020.
