A visual overt attention mechanism is presented in this paper. Our algorithm chooses the next fixation point for a robot mobile camera in order to track several objects around the robot simultaneously, even if the whole set of them can not be covered by the same camera image. Our approach is based on two related measurements, liveliness and saliency, that dynamically evolve depending on the image observations and the camera movements. The attention is shared among exploring the surroundings for… CONTINUE READING
