Abstract

This paper proposes a Distributed Vision System (DVS), which is an intelligent infrastructure for mobile robots consisting of many vision agents (VAs) embedded in an environment. The system monitors the environment from various viewing points with the VAs, maintains the dynamic environment models, and provides various information to robots. Based on this concept, we have developed a prototype of the DVS which consists of sixteen vision agents and simultaneously navigates two robots in a model town.
