Work on Rodney's vision system continues apace. The latest algorithm to be completed is a texture-based segmentation routine. This breaks the image down into a number of coloured blobs.

After some tweaking of the algorithm I've managed to get it working quite well, even on the often poor quality images captured from the robot's webcams. This segmentation routine may be very useful for detecting face-like areas of the image for face recognition. The characteristic shapes produced by different hand movements may also be a strong candidate for recognition using this algorithm.
