We develop an architecture for reactive visual analysis of dynamic scenes. We specify a minimal set of system features based upon biological observations. We implement feature on a processing network based around an active stereo vision mechanism. Active rectification and mosaicing allows static stereo algorithms to operate on the active platform. Foveal zero disparity operations permit attended object extraction and ensures coordinated stereo fixation upon visual surfaces. Active-dynamic inhibition of return, and task dependent biasing result in a flexible, preemptive and retrospective system that responds to unique visual stimuli and is capable of top-down modulation of attention towards regions and cues relevant to tasks.
