Proposal to ARPA for Continuation of Micro-Automation Development

Unknown author (1973-01-01)

This proposal discusses practical aspects of our project to produce a replicable research tool for development of real-world computer-controlled hand-eye systems. If this proposal is read out of context, it will not seem very sophisticated because it is concerned mainly with the practical aspects of putting together an engineering system. The theoretical and conceptual context is described more thoroughly in the memo, supplementary to our main ARPA contract proposal, that describes in detail robotics reasearch at the MIT A.I. Laboratory.
