I. ALEKSANDER Kobler Unit for info expertise administration, Imperial collage of technological know-how and expertise, London, England it truly is now over part a decade due to the fact Joseph Engelberger wrote: 'Given a six-articulation arm of any configuration, software program may be robust sufficient to imagine purely in device coordinates. that's, a programmer matters himself purely with the instrument at the finish of the robotic arm. He can reflect on the tool's body of reference and com­ puter subroutines immediately make some of the articulations stream so that it will accomplish the specified device manipulation. ' As is frequently the case with statements of this type, they're beautiful and customarily well-founded in technological feasibility. yet so one can flip the prediction into fact it calls for the commitment and in­ ventiveness of a world group of researchers. the article of this ebook is to supply a window directly to the various advances made by way of this neighborhood which move in the direction of the fulfilment of Engelberger's predictions. a significant component within the framework in which this paintings is being pursued is the outstanding boost within the availability of inex­ pensive and hugely compact computing strength. It turns into increas­ ingly attainable to visualize robust microprocessors offering neighborhood intelligence at key issues in a robotic arm Uoints, gripper, and so on) by means of being attached via a communications community and regulated via a few specifically targeted supervisory microchip.

Contours are detected as boundaries of all objects of each binary image and are represented by the digital value I in a memory. A circular operator (field) is used to follow the contours detected. To recognize a contour segment inside the operator field, the central element and at least two nonadjacent peripheral elements of the operator must have the digital value of 1. The contour segment is represented by a very simple graph consisting of one node labeled with the word "segment" and several arcs joined to the node and labeled with the attributes of the feature "segment" such as "direction, a;" "coordinates, X, Y;" "length, r;" "straight" or "curved;" and "contour;" where a, X, Y, and r are measures of the attributes.

46 z. M. Wojcik The Method of Recognizing Contours Detected A circular operator O(X, Y) is translocated in the raster, one element after another, till the central element p(X, Y) of the operator comes against the digital value 1. Subsequently, values of the peripheral elements of the operator are investigated. It is essential here that the operator field should be greater in comparison with the operator field used in detecting objects. It is assumed that if (X, Y) = 1 for the central element of the O(X, Y), the segment of the contour must certainly be found within the operator field.
