Bayesian Inference in Model-Based Machine Vision
Thomas Binford, Tod Levitt, Wallace Mann
This is a preliminary version of visual interpretation integrating multiple sensors in SUCCESSOR, an intelligent, model-based vision system. We pursue a thorough integration of hierarchical Bayesian inference with comprehensive physical representation of objects and their relations in a system for reasoning with geometry, surface materials and sensor models in machine vision. Bayesian inference provides a framework for accruing_ probabilities to rank order hypotheses.
Keywords: Multiple Sensors, SUCCESSOR, Model-Based
