Vision is an integral part of the state-of-the-art robotics, with visual sensing having been found invaluable in applications from industrial to service robotics helping in solving problems from localization and mapping to manipulation and teleoperation. Robot vision is not just computer vision. While robotics poses several challenges for visual processing, for example, three-dimensional (3-D) operation and performance requirements, there is an aspect in particular that makes robot vision special and distinguishes it from mainstream computer vision. Another interesting area is dealing with objects that change their appearance and shape over the course of an action being applied to them. Examples include a cracked egg or hacked cucumber. The technical committee (TC) on computer and robot vision aims at bringing together researchers sharing interest in robot vision and promoting discussion between computer vision and robotics communities.
