computer vision


computer vision
1. a robot analogue of human vision in which information about the environment is received by one or more video cameras and processed by computer: used in navigation by robots, in the control of automated production lines, etc.
2. a similar system for the blind that converts optical information into tactile signals. Also called machine vision, vision.

Field of robotics in which programs attempt to identify objects represented in digitized images provided by video cameras, thus enabling robots to "see.

" Much work has been done on stereo vision as an aid to object identification and location within a three-dimensional field of view. Recognition of objects in real time, as would be needed for active robots in complex environments, usually requires computing power beyond the capabilities of present-day technology. See also pattern recognition.
