This paper investigates vision based robot control based on a receding horizon control strategy. The stability of the receding horizon control scheme is guaranteed by using the terminal cost derived from an energy function of the visual feedback system. By applying the proposed control scheme to a two-link direct drive manipulator with a CCD camera, it is shown that the stabilizing receding horizon control nicely works for a planar visual feedback system. Furthermore, actual nonlinear experimental results are assessed with respect to the stability and the performance.
