This paper describes an experimental computer program that analyzes pictures taken in a simple, but nevertheless real-world, robot environment. The analysis proceeds by building up, step by step, a partial line drawing representation of a digitized television picture. An interesting feature of the system is an executive program that uses detailed knowledge of the environment to control other programs that extract the partial line drawing. Examples are given to illustrate the operation of this experimental program.
A continuation of the AI research based around Shakey.
