Abstract

Purposive, Animate Vision or Active Perception emphasises the relationship between perception and the perceiver’s physiology, as well as that tasks performed must be considered in building intelligent visual systems [3]. However, such research generally considers low-level vision (e.g., segmentation, optical flow). There has been little consideration, to date, of the relationship between perception and the perceiver’s physiology for high-level vision. This chapter discusses philosophical aspects of what is required to apply of high-level vision when the perceiver has a real body, i.e., an autonomous mobile robot. This chapter also proposes a framework of embodied categorisation for high-level vision and interaction for mobile robots. This framework is subsequently used throughout this book.
