This paper addresses the problem of determining which 3D shape is present, and more importantly, the dimensions of the shape in a scene. This is performed in an active vision system because it reduces the complexity of the problem through the use of gaze stabilization, choice of foveation point, and selective processing by adaptively processing regions of interest. In our case, only a small number of equations and parameters are needed for each shape and these are incorporated into functional descriptions of the shapes.
