The problem of perception

  • Mark H. Lee
Part of the Open University Press Robotics Series book series (OUPRS)


In this chapter we continue our examination of computer vision in order to illustrate the difficulties of processing sensory data. In fact, these problems apply to most sensors, but they are easier to appreciate for computer vision and image processing.

  1. The vision research issues discussed in this chapter are reviewed by M. Brady in Computing Surveys (1982), volume 14, number 1, pp. 3–71. Also, the journal Artificial Intelligence has a relevant special issue on computer vision (volume 17, numbers 1–3; 1981). The IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence are a source of research results.Google Scholar
  2. The book Computer Vision by D. H. Ballard and C. M. Brown (Prentice-Hall, 1982) can be highly recommended for insight into these topics.Google Scholar
  3. An interesting discussion about `Expert vision systems’ is in the useful journal Computer Vision, Graphics, and Image Processing (1986), volume 34, pp. 99–117Google Scholar
