Title: Verification Vision within a programmable assembly system: an
Author: Bolles, Robert C.

Abstract: This paper defines a class of visual feedback tasks called
"Verification Vision" which includes a significant portion of
the feedback tasks required within a programmable assembly
system. It characterizes a set of general-purpose
capabilities which, if implemented, would provide a user with
a system in which to write programs to perform such tasks.
Example tasks and protocols are used to motivate these
semantic capabilities. Of particular importance are the tools
required to extract as much information as possible from
planning and/or training sessions. Four different levels of
verification systems are discussed. They range from a
straightforward interactive system which could handle a
subset of the verification vision tasks, to a completely
automatic system which could plan its own strategies and
handle the total range of verification tasks. Several
unsolved problems in the area are discussed.
