A Few Steps Towards 3D Active Vision

Front Cover
Springer, Jan 1, 1997 - Technology & Engineering - 240 pages
A Few Steps Towards 3D Active Vision describes several modules that can be used to perform 3D vision. A specific problem in the field of active vision is analyzed, namely, how suitable is it to explicitly use 3D visual cues in a reactive visual task? The author has collected a set of studies on this subject and has used these experimental and theoretical developments to propose a synthetic view on the problem, completed by some specific experiments. With this book scientists and graduate students will have a complete set of methods, algorithms, and experiments to introduce 3D visual cues in active visual perception mechanisms such as autocalibration of visual sensors on robotic heads and mobile robots. Analogies with biological visual systems provide an easy introduction to this subject.
