About these proceedings


The collection of articles presented here, emerged from the Block Island Workshop on Vision and Control that brought together pioneering researchers from around the world. Discussions of new theoretical developments and the empirical validation of techniques and applications, are recorded in this book. Over recent years, robotics, computer vision and control theory researchers have addressed theoretical issues of: real-time vision, visual tracking, the active focus of attention and vision-based control of motion. At the same time, these theoretical insights have been used in applications such as: vision-based autonomous driving, vision-based grasping, human-computer interfaces, control of MEMS systems and medical image processing. From this book the reader will gain an overview of the latest thinking in vision and control, as well as an introduction to many of the techniques used in this area.
