About this book

This monograph is devoted to the problem of inferring geometric information about arbitrarily curved surfaces from visual cues; this is a central problem in computer vision with immediate relevance for robot manipulation and navigation.
The author develops computational theories and techniques relating visual information arising from viewer movements to the differential geometry of visible surfaces. The theories developed have been implemented and tested using a real-time tracking system based on deformable contours. Applications of the techniques to geometric modelling, obstacle avoidance, navigation, and object manipulation are presented.
