For the purpose of solving the problem of identification and following the target (object), a method of robot control based on image processing to follow the target is proposed. Based on the algorithm of pattern matching from the sample image and converting the obtained target coordinates to the rotation angle, the control unit is equipped with a laser light to direct the target. The control system was simulated by LABVIEW software. Actual results have shown the correct and stable operation of the system.
