The increase in hardware performance versus component cost has brought vision firmly into the realm of practical robotic sensors. We present an overview of an integrated research program to create a general-purpose robotic vision system from an expansive rather than linear perspective, incorporating a multimodal approach to real-time visual interaction with the environment. Design and construction of a high-performance active camera platform using primarily off-the-shelf components has proceeded in parallel with algorithm design and implementation towards a suite of low-level behaviours suitable for feeding quantised data to a multitude of visually guided tasks, from mobile robot navigation and visual servoing to human-robot interaction and instruction. We describe these initiatives, including performance specifications and experimental results obtained under real-world conditions
