Robot Vision Second International Workshop, RobVis 2008, Auckland, New Zealand, February 18-20, 2008, Proceedings

In 1986, B.K.P. Horn published a book entitled Robot Vision, which actually discussed a wider ?eld of subjects, basically addressing the ?eld of computer vision, but introducing “robot vision” as a technical term. Since then, the - teraction between computer vision and research on mobile systems (of...
