Abstract : The author describes an evolving computer vision system in which the parameters of the camera are controlled by the computer. It is distinguished from conventional picture processing systems by the fact that sensor accommodation is automatic and treated as an integral part of the recognition process. Accommodation improves the reliability and efficiency of machine perception by matching the information provided by the sensor with that required by specific perceptual functions. The advantages of accommodation are demonstrated in the context of five key functions in computer vision: acquisition, contour following, verifying the presence of an expected edge, range-finding, and color recognition.
