ProVision is a new language, based on Prolog, which incorporates facilities for both image processing and the control of electro-mechanical devices. A sample ProVision "program" is presented which illustrates the use of the language for identifying isolated objects (table cutlery) . In addition, the application of ProVision language to a number of different tasks in robot vision is described. These include stacking blocks, packing 2-dimensional shapes, recognition of rigid, articulated and overlapping components, and the analysis of images of overlapping transparent plates. These are all tasks which require the integration of machine vision and decision making.
