Abstract:

The SRI Image Understanding program is a broad effort spanning the entire range of machine vision research. Its three major concerns are 1 to develop an understanding of the physics and mathematics of the vision process, 2 to develop a knowledge-based framework for integrating and reasoning about sensed imaged data, and 3 to develop a machine-based environment for effective experimentation, demonstration, and evaluation of our theoretical results, as well as providing a vehicle for technology transfer. This report describes recent process in all three areas. In particular, we describe progress in constructing and testing a state-of-the-art automated system for stereo compilation, new approaches to extracting depth and structural information from imaged data, a knowledge-based system for feature extraction, and tools for scene modeling and interaction with a machine terrain data base.
