Graduate School of Information Systems, University of Electro-Communications, 1-5-1 Chofu-ga-oka, Chofu-shi, Tokyo 182-8585, Japan
Human beings obtain big amount of information from the external world through their visual system. Automated system such as robot must provide the visual functions for their flexible operations in 3-D circumstances. In order to realize the visual function artificially, we would be better to learn from the human visual mechanism. Optical illusions would be a pure reflection of the human visual mechanism; they can be used for investigating human visual mechanism. New types of optical illusion with binocular viewing are introduced and investigated.
