Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 427)


We present a theory, based on the concept of active vision, for the fusion of information provided by different “shape from x” algorithms (here shading and texture), and a method for choosing the observer's activity optimizing the recovery of the shape.
