We discuss the need of an elaborated in-between stage bridging early vision and cognitive vision which we call `Early Cognitive Vision' (ECV). This stage provides semantically rich, disambiguated and largely task independent scene representations which can be used in many contexts. In addition, the ECV stage is important for generalization processes across objects and actions.We exemplify this at a concrete realisation of an ECV system that has already been used in variety of application domains.
