  • Tiansi Dong
Part of the Studies in Computational Intelligence book series (SCI, volume 388)


This chapter presents a commonsense approach to recognizing variable spatial environments. It is structured as follows: Section 4.1 presents the starting point; section 4.2 proposes spatial relations between extended objects; section 4.3 presents the notion of the relative space; section 4.4 proposes the notion of the relative stability; section 4.5 proposes the principle of reference between extended objects; section 4.6 presents the structure of a cognitive spectrum; section 4.7 presents the relations between two cognitive spectrums that pertains to recognize spatial environments; section 4.8 summaries The Theory of Cognitive Prism.
