This paper presents the development of a control system for vision-guided pick-and-place tasks using a robot arm equipped with a 3D camera. The main steps include camera intrinsic and extrinsic calibration, hand-eye calibration, initial object pose registration, objects pose alignment algorithm, and pick-and-place execution. The proposed system allows the robot be able to pick and place object with limited times of registering a new object and the developed software can be applied for new object scenario quickly. The integrated system was tested using the hardware combination of kuka iiwa, Robotiq grippers (two finger gripper and three finger gripper) and 3D cameras (Intel real sense D415 camera, Intel real sense D435 camera, Microsoft Kinect V2). The whole system can also be modified for the combination of other robotic arm, gripper and 3D camera.
