    In this paper a system for controlling a micromanipulator having several degrees of freedom is presented. On CCD camera is used together with a microscope and a high speed DSP system to provide the correct position of the actuator in a microscopic space. The vision algorithm is based on a modified CMA method for producing the exact XY-position. The relative Z-coordinate is calculated using a modified depth-from-defocus method. A software implementation is presented and performace for the vision system is given together with the test results.
