Paper Abstract

This paper describes the realization of a biologically-plausible integrated vision system for implementing reactive behaviors of mobile robots. The starting point is the coupling of a vision stereo-matching algorithm with a collision avoidance method called DVZ (Deformable Virtual Zone). Some experiments have been carried out with MATLAB in order to test the validity of this method. Very interesting results have already been obtained in simulation and a prototyping board is presented.
