A visual servoing controller is programmed using finite state machine logic to increase the positional accuracy of a robotic arm under impedance control during free-space motion, to better align a chamfered peg with a hole, and minimize the possibility of wedging during insertion. This approach allows many types of manipulators commanded through Cartesian trajectory inputs to compensate for positional inaccuracy, enabling improved alignment of the peg and hole knowing only their approximate

The result is a compliant robotic manipulator that is able to achieve peg and hole alignment with an acceptable average lateral error of 0.0025 meters and a rotational error of 0.022 radians, which in our case is sufficient to allow an impedance controlled robot to successfully avoid wedging during peg and hole assembly.
