  1. 1. Interpretation and Alignment of 2D Indoor Maps : Towards a Heterogeneous Map Representation

    Author : Saeed Gholami Shahbandi; Björn Åstrand; Roland Philippsen; Antanas Verikas; Patric Jensfelt; Högskolan i Halmstad; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Robotics; Mobile Robots; Autonomous Robots; Robot Perception; Robotic Mapping; Map Interpretation; Semantic Mapping; Place Categorization; Place Labeling; Semantic Annotation; Map Alignment; Region Segmentation; Region Decomposition; Map Representation; Heterogeneous Representation;

    Abstract : Mobile robots are increasingly being used in automation solutions with notable examples in service robots, such as home-care, and warehouses. Autonomy of mobile robots is particularly challenging, since their work space is not deterministic, known a priori, or fully predictable. READ MORE

  2. 2. Some Aspects of Mobile Map Services

    Author : Hanna Stigmar; Fastighetsvetenskap; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; amount of information; information services; cartography; map; mobile map services; usability;

    Abstract : The technology of today, with the use of computers and the Internet, has enabled new types of map usage. Screen maps provide possibilities that could never be offered by standard paper maps, and allow maps to be integrated into information services. READ MORE

  3. 3. Helping robots help us : Using prior information for localization, navigation, and human-robot interaction

    Author : Malcolm Mielle; Martin Magnusson; Achim Lilienthal; Erik Schaffernicht; Marjorie Skubic; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; graph-based SLAM; prior map; sketch map; emergency map; map matching; graph matching; segmentation; search and rescue;

    Abstract : Maps are often used to provide information and guide people. Emergency maps or floor plans are often displayed on walls and sketch maps can easily be drawn to give directions. However, robots typically assume that no knowledge of the environment is available before exploration even though making use of prior maps could enhance robotic mapping. READ MORE

  4. 4. Map-reading and wayfinding

    Author : Torgny Ottosson; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Children; cognition; cognitive psychology; map skills; maps; orienteering; phenomenography; phenomenology; preschool children; primary education;

    Abstract : The aim of the study is to make an analysis of map-reading as a cognitive phenomenon, with the use of a map for finding one's way as the specific focus. As a point of departure, the nature of human beings' knowledge of spatial relationships in their physical environment (here termed macro-spatial relations) is discussed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Genetic Analysis of Fat Metabolism in Domestic Pigs and their Wild Ancestor

    Author : Frida Berg; Leif Andersson; Maria Moller; Stefan Marklund; Sigbjörn Lien; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Genetics; Pig; Quantitative Trait Locus; Fat deposition; FAT1; Linkage map; RH map; Comparative map; Backcross; Identical by Descent mapping; Brown adipose tissue; UCP1; Genetik;

    Abstract : The domestication of the pig began about 9 000 years ago and many of the existing domestic breeds have been selected for phenotypic traits like lean meat and fast growth. Domestic pigs are phenotypically very different from the ancestral wild boar that has adapted to survive in their natural environment. READ MORE
