Abstract

Advanced courses in the areas of Machine Perception and Machine Intelligence are not easy to prepare or conduct due to the dynamic research nature of the field. In engineering, our interest is in the construction of intelligent machines in the form of robotic devices or through computer simulation models. Studies in this area are further complicated by the broad range of disciplines that must be accessed in order to provide adequate coverage. This discussion focuses on a set of computer simulation projects that have been assigned at various times during offerings of an advanced graduate level course entitled Machine Perception. The format of the projects are presented with discussion of student results. The projects were novel in that they require advanced techniques of machine vision and are open-ended in that there are no specific solutions. The problems represent the mainstream of machine perception research without requiring more effort than is possible in a one semester course. Students responded with algorithms developed in a variety of computer languages and on various machines.
