Module for selecting the attention towards some stimuli. For now it is just a basic maximum detector of the information produced by egosphere.
Compiler & Linker Dependencies
--name /iCub/attentionSelection // input port containing egosphere saliency map; see#Input data files
--file <x:/path/to/config.ini> // configuration file; see #Configuration files
Ports that are assumed to exist prior to instantiation of the module (i.e. some other module must create them)
Ports that are instantiated by the module and are then available for other modules to use (using yarp connect)
/chica/egosphere/ego/map // input port for egosphere saliency map; see#Input data files /chica/attentionselection // output port ...
