<p><b>Abstract</b>—The authors present a framework to guide development of evidential reasoning in object recognition systems. Principles of evidential reasoning processes for open-world object recognition are proposed and applied to build evidential reasoning capabilities. The principles summarize research and findings by the authors up through the mid-1990s, including seminal results in object-centered computer vision, figure-ground discrimination, and the application of hierarchical Bayesian inference, Bayesian networks, and decision graphs to evidential reasoning for object recognition.</p>
