Autonomous Observers are mobile robots that cooperatively perform vision tasks. Their design raises new issues in motion planning, where visibility constraints and motion obstructions must be simultaneously taken into account. An autonomous observer accepts high-level directives from a remote user in order to perform tasks such as target tracking in cluttered environments, pursuit-evasion in polygonal environments, and automatic 3-D model construction.

We have succesfully employed an autonomous observer as a robotic
tool for experimentation among geographically dispersed groups.
