This paper presents a method for controlling a two-wheeled mobile manipulator with visual servoing. There are three subsystems: stereo vision system, 10 DOF dual arm manipulator and two-wheeled mobile robot. The whole system can be seen as an inverted pendulum. When the robot reaches the stable state, the centroid of the whole system is in the perpendicular line of the central point of mobile robot platform and ground. The target object can be tracked using CamShift algorithm. The size, position of the object, and the distance between the object and mobile manipulator can be obtained with visual servoing. A stereo vision system with image based visual servoing (IBVS) is proposed in this paper.
