    • A Vector Signal Processing Approach to Color 

      Sung, Kah-Kay (1992-01-01)
      Surface (Lambertain) color is a useful visual cue for analyzing material composition of scenes. This thesis adopts a signal processing approach to color vision. It represents color images as fields of 3D vectors, from ...
    • A Virtual Machine for a Type-omega Denotational Proof Language 

      III, Teodoro Arvizo (2002-06-01)
      In this thesis, I designed and implemented a virtual machine (VM) for a monomorphic variant of Athena, a type-omega denotational proof language (DPL). This machine attempts to maintain the minimum state required to ...
    • Virtual Model Control of a Biped Walking Robot 

      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 ...
    • Virtual Model Control of a Hexapod Walking Robot 

      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 ...
    • Vision, Instruction, and Action 

      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 ...
    • Visual Navigation: Constructing and Utilizing Simple Maps of an Indoor Environment 

      Sarachik, Karen Beth (1989-03-01)
      The goal of this work is to navigate through an office environmentsusing only visual information gathered from four cameras placed onboard a mobile robot. The method is insensitive to physical changes within the room ...
    • Why are There so Few Female Computer Scientists? 

      Spertus, Ellen (1991-08-01)
      This report examines why women pursue careers in computer science and related fields far less frequently than men do. In 1990, only 13% of PhDs in computer science went to women, and only 7.8% of computer science ...
