Abstract : The report presents a simple algorithm for machine visual target detection and localization based on aspects of the known functional neuroanatomy of biological systems. The system can generate, from the relative motion of a target image on the sensor surface, a series of motor commands that reorient the high-resolution portion of the sensor surface to regions of the target that potentially contain the most information. The reorientations are analogous to saccadic eye movements of biological visual systems. Motion analysis, Scan paths, Saccadic eye movements, Superior collicus, Scale invariance.
