Paper Abstract

In this paper I describe work in progress on a low cost vision-based robot designed to give primitive tours. The system is very simple, robust and efficient, and runs on a hardware platform which could be duplicated for less than $10K. Much of the system's efficiency is due to its implicit knowledge about the structure and appearance of its environment. This knowledge is not represented explicitly but rather is encoded in the structure of the system. I give an overview of the system, discuss the properties of its environment, and show how they can be used to simplify the design of the system.
