This article describes a technique for selecting regions for a robotic vision application using a teach pendant associated with the robot. This technique improves the man machine interface for generating and debugging automation programs for use on a system comprising combination of motion control devices, such as robots and a computer vision system, for guidance and/or simple inspection, by simplifying the manual selection of desired objects in the image to be analyzed from undesired objects, as well as reducing the time necessary to do the selection by attempting to automatically decide which object is desired to be analyzed during an application teaching session.
