We present a binocular active vision system that can attend to and fixate a moving target. Our system has an open and expandable design and it forms the first steps of a long term effort towards developing an active observer using vision to interact with the environment, in particular capable of figure-ground segmentation. We also present partial real-time implementations of this system and show their performance in real-world situations together with motor control. In pursuit we particularly focus on occlusions of other targets, both stationary and moving, and integrate three cues, ego- motion, target motion and target disparity, to obtain an overall robust behavior. An active vision system must be open, expandable, and operate with whatever data are available momen- tarily. It must also be equipped with means and meth- ods to direct and change its attention. This system is therefore equipped with motion detection for changing attention and pursuit for maintaining attention, both of which run concurrently.
