This paper addresses the problem of computing the optimal placement in space from which a sensor can perform an inspection task, given a model of the sensor and of the object to be inspected. We present briefly the concept of visibility scripts for active inspection and concentrate on stereo visibility, i.e., the optimal placement of a stereo head within the visibility region of a feature. An algorithm for computing stereo visibility scripts is presented, and its complexity and experimental performance discussed. © 1994.
