    A consistent development of general moment invariants of affine transformations for two-dimensional image functions is presented. Based on this development, a new general moment-invariants/attributed-graph (MIAG) method is presented for the identification of three-dimensional objects from a single observed image using a model-matching approach. The three-dimensional location and orientation parame... View full abstract»

    An algorithm that finds the externally visible vertices of a polygon is described. This algorithm generates a new geometric construction, termed the convex ropes of each visible vertex. The convex ropes give the range of angles from which each vertex is visible, and they give all the pairs of vertices which are reachable by a straight robot finger. All of the convex ropes can be found in expected ... View full abstract»

    Integration of an automated manufacturing system is now recognized as one of the key issues for improving productivity. The separation of a large complex system into smaller subsystems that operate individually contributes to an efficient integration and control of the entire system. However, the overall performance of the system may be reduced if each subsystem operates independently and if no co... View full abstract»

    A methodology for three-dimensional collision-free path planning by which planning is done in the three-dimensional orthogonal two-dimensional projections of a three-dimensional environment is presented, Collision checking is done in each of the three orthogonal two-dimensional subspaces using primitive path segments. A hierarchical-path search method is used to speed up the search process. This a... View full abstract»

    A new architecture for controlling mobile robots is described. Layers of control system are built to let the robot operate at increasing levels of competence. Layers are made up of asynchronous modules that communicate over low-bandwidth channels. Each module is an instance of a fairly simple computational machine. Higher-level layers can subsume the roles of lower levels by suppressing their outp... View full abstract»

    A common task in computer vision is to recognize the objects in an image. Most computer vision systems do this by matching models for each possible object type in turn, recognizing objects by the best matches. This is not ideal, as it does not take advantage of the similarities and differences between the possible object types. The computation time also increases linearly with the number of possib...
