I have a robot that goes on black line. it comes to the manipulator and when robot stops manipulator should move to it and stay upon it. After some time manipulator goes to the initial position. Manipulator has a camera that looks at the line. With camera it detects green color situated on robot. How can I program manipulator to activate when robot stops? I have a friend that made it with an array. Some examples, code.

what is a "manipulator", and how is it related to opencv ?

Sorry. I meant robo-arm. It has a camera and makes decisions depending on images from it.

i guess, we can help you with the image processing, but not at all with: - how to control your arm.

So the question was how to detect that object has stopped its movement. And how to control my robo-arm that is my side.
