Describes the current research into vision‐based control of remotely controlled vehicles. The research at Robotics and Mechatronics Research Laboratory (RMRL), Monash University, Australia, aims to establish the foundation for future studies in control actions on levers and joysticks for guiding remotely operated vehicles. Use is made of a remote‐controlled car which is tracked by an overhead camera. A frame grabber is utilized to process the images and pass the necessary information about the relative position of the vehicle to the computer. Two servo‐driven mechanical arms are controlled to move the joysticks on the remote control unit. Focuses attention on simplified strategies for tracking and the subsequent control of such vehicles. Describes experimental facility comprising of the mechatronic components and their integration within this research‐based apparatus. Also presents future work in this area.
