The production of 3D models has been a popular research topic already for a long time, and important progress has been made since the early days. During the last decades, vision systems have established to become the standard and one of the most efficient sensorial assets in industrial and everyday applications. Due to the fact that vision provides several(More)

This chapter discusses the use of transition graphs for reasoning about continuous spatial change over time. The chapter first presents a general definition of a transition graph for a partition of a topological space. Then it defines the path-connected and the homogeneous refinements of such a partition. The qualitative behavior of paths through the space(More)
Sophisticated, commercially deployed spoken dialogue systems capable of engaging in more natural human-machine conversation have increased in number over the past years. Besides employing advanced interpretation and dialogue management technologies, the success of such systems greatly depends on effective design and development methodology. There is,(More)
