Practical Robot design

Hi,
I need to start a robot design with machine vision, pick n place and few mechnical movement capabilities. Where do I begin? I have a background in electronic design, programming and NO prior knowledge of robotics.
TIA

Browse through the last couple of days of ebook
uploads. There were a few titles regarding robotics
and at least one about machine vision.

My point of view is

start defining all the action the robot would have to do, find how it will the action (arm rotation, move of the robot if it's a mobile robot)

From that you can decide which sensors and wich actuators you need, the skelet of the robot.

And then design the electronic to control actuators from data read by sensors

Robots

It sounds more like you want to make a machine to stuff PC Boards. When you mention robots to a bunch of hobbyiests like us, we think of usually-impractical robots that wander around on their own. Machine vision systems for these robots is also geared towards tracking a red ball, or another robot.
