  1. 1. Indoor Navigation for Mobile Robots : Control and Representations

    Author : Philipp Althaus; KTH; []
    Keywords : mobile robots; robot navigation; indoor navigation; behaviour based robotics; hybrid deliberative systems; dynamical systems approach; topological maps; symbol anchoring; autonomous mapping; human-robot interaction;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with various aspects of indoor navigationfor mobile robots. For a system that moves around in ahousehold or office environment,two major problems must betackled. First, an appropriate control scheme has to bedesigned in order to navigate the platform. Second, the form ofrepresentations of the environment must be chosen. READ MORE

  2. 2. On Fundamental Elements of Visual Navigation Systems

    Author : Rafid Siddiqui; Abujawad Rafid Siddiqui; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; robot navigation; localization; visual mapping; scene understanding; semantic mapping;

    Abstract : Visual navigation is a ubiquitous yet complex task which is performed by many species for the purpose of survival. Although visual navigation is actively being studied within the robotics community, the determination of elemental constituents of a robust visual navigation system remains a challenge. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bayesian Inference for Nonlinear Dynamical Systems : Applications and Software Implementation

    Author : Jerker Nordh; Institutionen för reglerteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Indoor Navigation; pyParticleEst; Software Implementation; Simultaneous Localization and Mapping; Parameter Estimation; System Identification; Sequential Importance Sampling; Particle Filter; Bayesian Inference; Markov Chain Monte Carlo; Particle Smoother;

    Abstract : The topic of this thesis is estimation of nonlinear dynamical systems, focusing on the use of methods such as particle filtering and smoothing. There are three areas of contributions: software implementation, applications of nonlinear estimation and some theoretical extensions to existing algorithms. READ MORE

  4. 4. Visual navigation in a conspicuously planar world

    Author : Per Fornland; KTH; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This thesis addresaee an important topic in computer vision,namely finding the ground plane and potential obstacles in theimages taken by an indoor mobile platform. This is ofimportante, since the platform then automatically can detect ifit can continue on its path. READ MORE

  5. 5. Increasing Autonomy of Unmanned Aircraft Systems Through the Use of Imaging Sensors

    Author : Piotr Rudol; Andrzej Szalas; Pascual Campoy; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; UAV; UAS; UAV autonomy; human-body detection; color-thermal image fusion; vehicle tracking; geolocation; UAV indoor navigation;

    Abstract : The range of missions performed by Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) has been steadily growing in the past decades thanks to continued development in several disciplines. The goal of increasing the autonomy of UAS's is widening the range of tasks which can be carried out without, or with minimal, external help. READ MORE
