At the same time the coarse peripheral region of the retina must extract visual information over a wide field of view to find new interesting locations for future detailed examination with the fovea. This paper describes the saccadic exploration of an image using an artificial retina with a spacevariant pseudo-random receptive field tessellation. A space-variant vision hierarchy extracts visual information and accumulates space-variant saliency data to determine the location for the next saccadic fixation. </ABSTRACT></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
