Recent advances in computer vision have given rise to a robust and invariant visual pattern recognition technology that is based on extracting a set of characteristic features from an image. Such features are obtained with the scale invariant feature transform (SIFT) which represents the variations in brightness of the image around the point of interest. Recognition performed with these features has been shown to be quite robust in realistic settings. This paper describes the application of this particular visual pattern recognition (ViPR) technology to a variety of robotics applications: object recognition, navigation, manipulation, and human-machine interaction. The paper also describes the technology in more detail and presents a business case for visual pattern recognition in the field of robotics and automation
