The goal of this project is to build a portable computer vision system using, as far as possible, inexpensive off-the-shelf components. A true portable vision system must have two components:
Physical portability would allow the system to be used out of doors, to be taken on trips, and to control a mobile robot. Software portability would allow researchers to share code with colleagues at other sites, and to work alternately at home and at the office. Both types of portability are essential, both to allow computer vision research to proceed at a suitable pace and to make computer vision algorithms suitable for practical applications.
We hope that our eventual system will
