We are experimenting with multiple mobile robots under visual control. The current goal of our work is to construct an architecture for robots engaged in cooperative and competitive behaviour. Multiple robots have recently been the focus of much attention; however, the little work that has been done with implemented systems has involved simple tasks and(More)
Our mobile robot, Spinoza, embodies a sophisticated real-time vision system for control of a mobile robot in a dynamic environment. The complexity of our robot architecture arises from the wide variety of tasks that need t o b e p erformed and the resulting challenge of coordinating multiple distributed, concurrent processes on a diverse range of processor(More)
To respond actively to a dynamic environment, a vision system must process perceptual data in real time, and in multiple modalities. The structure of the computational load varies across the levels of vision, requiring multiple architectures. We describe the Vision Engine, a system with a pipelined early vision architecture, Datacube image processors,(More)
