Dickmanns 1994d : Based on experience with real-time image sequence processing systems in the application areas of vehicle docking, road vehicle guidance, AGV’s on the factory floor, aircraft landing approaches and of dynamical grasping of free floating objects in Space with remote control from the ground including long delay times, an efficient, distributed, expectation- as well as object-based general dynamic vision system architecture has been developed. Parallelization is structured according to physical objects, the characteristics of which with respect to 3-D shape, motion behavior, visual appearance and all other significant properties in the task context are represented internally in generic form. Both differential representations for state estimation as well as behavior control, and integral ones for mission planning, mission control and monitoring are being used. References to detailed reports on all application areas mentioned are given.
