Abstract : The time period covered is the second year that we have had the Connection Machine (CM) Available to us. During the same period of time, we successfully demonstrated the Vision Machine system processing images and recognizing objects through the integration of several visual cues. The first version of the Vision Machine system, which is based on the CM and uses an Eye-Head robot as an input device, is now complete and functional. In parallel with the development of the Vision Machine, we have also continued to study the performance of alternative, nonconventional architectures for navigation. The body of this report gives an overview of the results of our research during the third year of funding. Details can be found in the appendices.
