Chapter 1:
Vision in Humans and Machines
In order to address the development of advanced vision capability in the machine, it is useful to begin with an examination of the visual systems of humans and animals. The complexity of these systems illustrates what is possible, and in some instances has shown us how we can construct machine vision systems with the efficiency and capabilities that nature has employed. There are however, limitations on natural systems that can be overcome with machines, as there are capabilities that exist in biological systems that we have yet to duplicate in the artificial.
