    Vision for Robotics (V4R) is a software package for tracking rigid objects in unknown surroundings. Its output is the 3-D pose of the target object, which can be further used as an input to control, e.g., the end effector of a robot. The major goals are tracking at camera frame rate and robustness. The latter is achieved by performing cue integration in order to compensate for weaknesses of indivi... View full abstract»

    ViSP (Visual Servoing Platform), a fully functional modular architecture that allows fast development of visual servoing applications, is described. The platform takes the form of a library which can be divided in three main modules: control processes, canonical vision-based tasks that contain the most classical linkages, and real-time tracking. ViSP software environment features independence with... View full abstract»
