Building A Scene - Taking Stock

The camera is connected directly to a small source of processing power - a laptop computer. This analyses the images it receives using bespoke software developed by the researchers.

As the camera moves, the system picks out landmarks as reference points and makes a map of their 3D locations, and protrusions which it then uses to monitor changes in its own position relative to the majority ? thereby allowing movement of items in visual range without affecting the system.
