Abstract

In this paper, we propose an assembly strategy for the insertion of an USB cable, which is one of the well-known connector cables, into a corresponding USB port. This strategy is required to automate the inspection process of USB ports. In the proposed method, we use the information from the camera and a force/torque sensor to minimize position uncertainties. The features of a USB port are detected by the vision system and the end-effector of the robot quickly moves to the front of the USB port through visual servoing. After that, an impedance controller is adopted to achieve a compliant contact motion and to overcome any existing translational/angular errors. The performance of the proposed USB assembly strategy was evaluated by a series of experiments using a 6 DOF industrial robot equipped with a force/torque sensor.
