Although several such systems have been reported in the literature, there is little information available regarding the performance criteria and design methodology employed during their development. This paper details the procedures used in the development of the Active Stereo Probe (ASP) precision stereo vision system that combines animate oculo-motor reflexes with a novel active illumination source. We describe how a mathematical model of the ASP imaging geometry and kinematics was utilised at all stages of the development process to ensure that the final system complied with the required performance criteria. The results of a series of simulation analysis experiments are presented together with their implications for the design and fabrication of the final system. Some initial results of surface reconstruction from stereogrammes captured by the completed head are also presented. </ABSTRACT></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
