THE CONFORMAL CAMERA IN MODELING VISUAL INFORMATION DURING EYES MOVEMENTS

Jacek Turski

Abstract

The conformal camera and its related projective Fourier transform that provide image representation well adapted to projective transformations and retinotopic mappings of the brain visual pathways are reviewed. The conformal camera’s non-Euclidean geometry effectiveness in intermediate-level vision is discussed, the algorithmic steps in modeling visual information during saccadic eye movements are outlined, and the research-in-progress on modeling perception during pursuit eye movements is described. It is concluded that the conformal camera may provide a computational framework needed for developing tools for processing visual information during the exploratory movements of the camera with a silicon retina, used in autonomous mobile robots.
