  2. 2. Towards Safer and Risk-aware Motion Planning and Control for Robotic Systems

    Author : Fernando S. Barbosa; Jana Tumova; Stephen Smith; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Computer Science; Datalogi;

    Abstract : Safety and risk-awareness are important properties for robotic systems, be it for protecting them from potentially dangerous internal states, or for avoiding collisions with obstacles and environmental hazards in disaster scenarios. Ensuring safety may be the role of more than one algorithmic layer in a system, each with varying assumptions and guarantees. READ MORE

  3. 3. Sense of Touch in Robots

    Author : Magnus Johnsson; Kognitionsvetenskap; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; touch perception; neural network; robot hand; brain model; cognitive model; robot model; tensor network; associative self-organizing map; SOM; proprioception;

    Abstract : This thesis discusses a number of robot touch perception systems. All these systems are self-organizing and model different aspects of human touch perception. The thesis starts out with introductions to the anatomy and the physiology of the human hand. READ MORE

  4. 4. Computer Assisted Coronary CT Angiography Analysis : Disease-centered Software Development

    Author : Chunliang Wang; Örjan Smedby; Anders Persson; Hans Frimmel; Markus Müller; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Coronary CTA; vessel segmenation; centerline tracking; visualization; Radiology; Radiologi; Image analysis; Bildanalys; Cardiology; Kardiologi;

    Abstract : The substantial advances of coronary CTA have resulted in a boost of use of this new technique in the last several years, which brings a big challenge to radiologists by the increasing number of exams and the large amount of data for each patient. The main goal of this study was to develop a computer tool to facilitate coronary CTA analysis by combining knowledge of medicine and image processing. READ MORE

  5. 5. Channel-Coded Feature Maps for Computer Vision and Machine Learning

    Author : Erik Jonsson; Michael Felsberg; Florentin Wörgötter; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; computer vision; machine learning; object recognition; pose estimation; Image analysis; Bildanalys;

    Abstract : This thesis is about channel-coded feature maps applied in view-based object recognition, tracking, and machine learning. A channel-coded feature map is a soft histogram of joint spatial pixel positions and image feature values. Typical useful features include local orientation and color. READ MORE
