Mantises (Mantodea, Mantidae) visually detect insect prey and capture it by a ballistic strike of their specialized forelegs. We tested predatory responses of female mantis, Sphodromantis viridis, to computer generated visual stimuli, to determine the effects of (i) target size and velocity (ii) discrete changes in target size and (iii) visual occlusion.(More)
We present an algorithm for real-time, robust, vision-based active tracking and pursuit. The algorithm was designed to overcome problems arising from active vision-based pursuit, such as target occlusion. Our method employs two layers to deal with occlusions of different lengths. The first layer is for short- or medium-term occlusions: those where a known(More)
