In this paper, we demonstrate that image processing algorithms (IPAs) can perform a new visual task, namely, selecting and locating regions-of-interest (ROIs). This task has been defined on the basis of a theory of human vision: the scanpath theory. Further, using the measures Sp and Ss, the similarity of location and ordering, respectively, developed over the years in studying human perception and the active looking role of eye movements, we could quantify the efficient and efficacious manner by which IPAs can imitate human vision in locating ROIs. The methodology in this paper is applied to the Mars Rover exploration.
