This paper presents four different visual strategies for use in docking operations for a mobile robot in a manufacturing environment. The algorithms developed include temporal activity (motion) detection, Hough transform-based recognition, adaptive fast region segmentation, and edge-based texture methods. These algorithms are to be sequenced in a manner that is consistent with our robot's motor behavior (schema) for docking, exploiting aspects of ballistic and controlled motion as the robot moves towards a workstation.
