  • Dolev, Shlomi; Gilbert, Seth; Lynch, Nancy A.; Schiller, Elad; Shvarstman, Alex A.; Welch, Jennifer (2004-02-26)
    One of the most significant challenges introduced by mobile networks is the difficulty in coping withthe unpredictable movement of mobile nodes. If, instead, the mobile nodes could be programmed totravel through the world ...
  • Pratt, Jerry E. (1995-12-01)
    The transformation from high level task specification to low level motion control is a fundamental issue in sensorimotor control in animals and robots. This thesis develops a control scheme called virtual model control ...
  • Torres, Ann L. (1996-12-01)
    Since robots are typically designed with an individual actuator at each joint, the control of these systems is often difficult and non-intuitive. This thesis explains a more intuitive control scheme called Virtual Model ...
  • Sarmenta, Luis F. G.; van Dijk, Marten; O'Donnell, Charles W.; Rhodes, Jonathan; Devadas, Srinivas (2006-09-11)
    A trusted monotonic counter is a valuable primitive thatenables a wide variety of highly scalable offlineand decentralized applications that would otherwise be prone to replay attacks, including offline payment, e-wallets, ...
  • Dolev, Shlomi; Gilbert, Seth; Lahiani, Limor; Lynch, Nancy; Nolte, Tina (2005-01-21)
    We define a programming abstraction formobile networks called the Virtual Stationary Automataprogramming layer, consisting of real mobile clients, virtualtimed I/O automata called virtual stationary automata(VSAs), and a ...
  • Grauman, Kristen; Shakhnarovich, Gregory; Darrell, Trevor (2004-01-28)
    Recovering a volumetric model of a person, car, or other object of interest from a single snapshot would be useful for many computer graphics applications. 3D model estimation in general is hard, and currently requires ...

    Recovering a volumetric model of a person, car, or other objectof interest from a single snapshot would be useful for many computergraphics applications. 3D model estimation in general is hard, andcurrently requires active ...
  • Horn, Berthold K.P. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1972-12)
    Here collected you will find a number of methods for solving certain kinds of "algebraic" problems found in vision and manipulation programs for our AMF arm and our TVC eye. They are collected here to avoid the need to ...
  • Maron, Oded; Lozano-Perez, Tomas (1998-06-01)
    We describe a method called Visible Decomposition for computing collision-free paths in real time through a planar environment with a large number of obstacles. This method divides space into local visibility graphs, ...
  • Poggio, Tomaso (1984-03-01)
    The development of increasingly sophisticated and powerful computers in the last few decades has frequently stimulated comparisons between them and the human brain. Such comparisons will become more earnest as computers ...
  • Batali, John (1981-05-01)
    Some well understood and well justified algorithms for early visual processing must be implemented in hardware for later visual processing to be studied. This paper describes the design and hardware implementation of ...
  • Chapman, David (1990-04-01)
    This thesis describes Sonja, a system which uses instructions in the course of visually-guided activity. The thesis explores an integration of research in vision, activity, and natural language pragmatics. Sonja's visual ...
  • Binford, Thomas O. (1970-07-01)
    Some of the facilities for vision programming are discussed in the format of a user's manual.
  • Minsky, Marvin (1967-02-01)
    This Memo proposes a set of systems programs for vision work. Please comment immediately as we should start on it at once. Values stored outside an array range should have no effect, but set an overflow flag: values read ...
  • Finin, Tim (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1972-06)
    This paper discusses some recent changes and additions to the vision system. Among the additions are the ability to use visual feedback when trying to acurately position an object and the ability to use the arm as a sensory ...
  • Horn, Berthold K.P. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1978-05)
  • Voorhees, Harry (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1985-12)
    This paper documents a collection of Lisp utilities which I have written while doing vision programming on a Symbolics Lisp machine. Many of these functions are useful both as interactive commands invoked from the Lisp ...
  • Poggio, Tomaso (1982-05-01)
    Nonlinear, local and highly parallel algorithms can perform several simple but important visual computations. Specific classes of algorithms can be considered in an abstract way. I study here the class of polynomial ...
  • Hurlbert, Anya; Poggio, Tomaso (1986-09-01)
    Existing computer programs designed to perform visual recognition of objects suffer from a basic weakness: the inability to spotlight regions in the image that potentially correspond to objects of interest. The brain's ...
  • Woodham, Robert J. (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1972-08)
    A system is proposed for the development of new techniques for the control and monitoring of a mechanical arm-hand. The use of visual feedback is seen to provide new interactive capabilities in a machine hand-eye system. ...
