Abstract: In this paper we report on our ongoing research on wearable active vision, where we have iteratively prototyped a Wearable Visual Robot-a body mounted robot for which the main sensor is a camera. Two main areas have been studied: robot design and visual algorithms. In the design stage, we have analysed sensor placement through the computation of the field of view and body motion using a 3D model of the human form. A design methodology for the robot morphology was developed with the help of an optimisation algo…
