Stereo Vision and Multisensory Perception

To give mobile robots real autonomy, and to permit them to act efficiently in a diverse, cluttered, and changing environment, they must be equipped with powerful tools for perception and reasoning. Artificial Vision for Mobile Robots presents new theoretical and practical tools useful for providing mobile robots with artificial vision in three dimensions, including passive binocular and trinocular stereo vision, local and global 3D map reconstructions, fusion of local 3D maps into a global 3D map, 3D navigation, control of uncertainty, and strategies of perception.
