AV-Shell, an Environment for Autonomous Robotic Applications Using Active Vision

  title={AV-Shell, an Environment for Autonomous Robotic Applications Using Active Vision},
  author={Jeffrey A. Fayman and Ehud Rivlin and Henrik I. Christensen},
  journal={Auton. Robots},
In this paper, we present a system called the Active Vision Shell (AV-shell) which provides a programming framework for expressing and implementing autonomous robotic tasks using perception and action where perception is provided by active vision. The AV-shell is a system with a powerful interactive C-shell style interface providing many important capabilities including: (1) architectural support; (2) an abstract interface enabling interaction with a wide variety of devices; (3) a rich set of… CONTINUE READING
