Optimal Control Problems in Binocular Vision by Professor Bhagya Athukorallage, Mathematics Faculty Seminar, Friday, December 2, 1 – 1:45 pm, North Science Building 017, Wachenheim.
Abstract: In this talk, we introduce nonlinear systems theory and geometry to control a pair of rotating visual sensors for gaze control and tracking a point target. Specifically, we consider two visual sensors that simultaneously gaze on stationary point targets in space. The target position changes discretely, and the problem we study is how to reorient the gaze directions of the sensors to the new location of the target. The goal is to optimally rotate visual sensors so that the convergent gaze changes between two pre-specified target points in a finite time interval.
