Robotics is a scientic discipline which includes the operation and evolution of robots and other elds of computer science (in particular the artificial intelligence), as well as electrical and mechanical engineering. Robotics has gained importance nowadays particularly in the field of medicine, disaster operation, automatic control, etc. The function of seeing is a very high-end technique for an autonomic mobile robot. Building such a robot requires a good knowledge of algorithms and the hardware of image processing systems. In the last years a robot's image understanding has been a skill to detect and identify objects in a room, map an undiscovered area, analyse the robot motion and manoeuvre the robot.
