A robot-vision project is reported which incorporates several existing AI methods and some new results. The ambition of the project is a system which can economically complete various intelligent tasks within the scope of mini- and microcomputers. The tuned composition of the applied methods provides a new and powerful approach to R and D engineering and workshop-operation.
