Robot systems that rely on vision as their main sensory capability need to be able to cope with changes in the visual environment and to manage a wide eld of view. Moreover, in order not to loose real-time response capabilities, selective visual sensing is indeed highly desirable. The \built-in" selection in space and time provided by space variant sensors(More)
Vergence provides robot vision systems with a crucial degree of freedom: it enables fixation of points in visual space at different distances from the observer. Vergence control, therefore, affects the performance of the stereo system as well as the results of motion estimation and tracking and, as such, must satisfy different requirements in order to be(More)
Vision is one of our most powerful senses to perceive the space around us. This ability is determinant to accomplish a variety of operations like locomotion, manipulation, selflocalization, recognition, etc. This thesis addresses the problem of visual perception in the context of mobile robotics, and directly illustrates some visually-guided behaviours.(More)
