About this book
The field of computer vision has developed significantly over the last several years and the application areas span a broad range from medicine to robotics and surveillance.
Unifying Perspectives in Computational and Robot Vision provides an overview of the latest research surrounding vision algorithms and their use and evaluation with robotic applications.
In robotics, computer vision is mainly seen as another sensory modality and new algorithms are commonly developed for different applications. In the computer vision community, there have been more requirements for benchmarking and comparison of methods but very few are still applied in realistic settings and in real-time which is one of the strongest requirements in robotic applications. Unifying Perspectives in Computational and Robot Vision brings the communities of robot and computer
vision to a joint appreciation of the value of systems, where there is a need to consider all aspects from perception to action generation.
Based on a workshop "From Features to Actions: Unifying Perspectives in Computational and Robot Vision" that was organized by the editors at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (Rome, April 2007), Unifying Perspectives in Computational and Robot Vision will be a valuable resource for readers.
