Image based visual servo (IBVS) system is meaningful in industrial scene. Path tracking on image plane in IBVS system is an important research topic. In this paper, we propose an XY/Z motion partitioned IBVS system, in which a fuzzy gain scheduler is combined to enable the feature points to track specified path on the image plane. The simulation results prove the effectiveness of our method, and the tracking errors are limited in 5 pixels.
