The purpose of robot vision is to enable robots to perceive the external world in order to perform a large range of tasks such as navigation, visual servoing for object tracking and manipulation, object recognition and categorization, surveillance, and higher-level decisionmaking. This book presents a snapshot of the wide variety of work in robot vision that is currently going on in different parts of the world.
