Abstract: This paper presents an approach towards integrating three different technologies, namely computer-aided design, computer vision and robotics into one unified CAD-based robotic vision system for three-dimensional objects. The underlying principle of our approach to the design of the system lies in the concept of off-line programming or pre-computation. Three-dimensional CAD models constructed by the CAD system are used as the basis for recognising and locating objects. They are precomputed for their vision model during an off-line phase so that efficient and fast recognition of the object is possible during the run-time phase.
