  abstract =     "An essential goal of image processing is the detection
                 of image structures like objects, object boundaries,
                 shapes, regions or surface defects. This goal can be
                 reached by a combination of detection algorithms and
                 localisation algorithms. Detection algorithms are able
                 to recognise the physical evidence of a structure
                 according to a given localization in the

                 Localisation algorithms cope with the position of image
                 structures in images. Most of them are tracking
                 algorithms. Because of the limited recognition
                 abilities the main goal of the foregoing detection
                 algorithm is to enhance an image object. The image
                 structure must be transformed into a kind of
                 information which is suitable for the localisation

                 However, in many fields of image processing this
                 approach does not give satisfying results.

                 This paper introduces a new approach by replacing the
                 conventional localisation algorithm by an image
                 exploring agent and by adapting its functional design
                 by means of genetic programming.",
