This paper Describes the relationship between the control performance and the number/configuration of the image features in feature-based visual servoing. The performance is evaluated by two ways: Accuracy and speed. A quantitive definition of the sensitivity is given and the relationship among the sensitivity, the speed of convergence and the accuracy are discussed by using the image Jacobian. It is proved that these performance indices are increased effectively by using a point with different height. Experiments on Puma 560 are given to show the validity of these performance measures.
