Abstract

The need for three-dimensional (3-D) computer vision in robot control, measurement of object geometry and autonomous vehicle navigation is considered. Many current 3-D schemes rely on algebraic surface representation methods. The authors present a parametric surface representation method based on the Ferguson surface patch. A parametric representation method appears to be better for describing free-form surfaces than algebraic methods. This kind of method may also advance the integration of CAD/CAM and computer vision.
