This paper is devoted to design and implement a non-holonomic wheeled mobile robot that possesses dynamic object-tracking capability by using real-time image processing. Two motion control laws are proposed using Lyapunov’s direct method and computed-torque method. Simulation results illustrate the effectiveness of the developed schemes. The overall experimental setup of the mobile robot developed in this paper is composed of a Windows based personal computer, Programmable Interface Controllers, a mobile robot, and an omni-directional vision system. Finally, the image-based real-time implementation experiments of the mobile robot demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed schemes.
