Abstract
A novel paradigm for the synthesis of convergent axis stereo geometries is presented. This paradigm incorporates constraints that represent task-oriented properties that can be easily derived in many applications of stereo-ranging, particularly those involving manipulation. Given these properties, a solution that selects the optimal design parameters, in the sense of accuracy, under the given constraints is presented. Results of this algorithm are discussed and analyzed in terms of the optimality of the minimum area technique used in the derivation.
