  1. 1. Preattentive gaze control for robot vision

    Author : Carl-Johan Westelius; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Robot vision; Resolution pyramids; Phase-based disparity estimation; Focus of attention; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : A framework for a hierarchical approach to gaze control of a robot vision system is presented, and a implementation on a simulated robot is described. The robot is equipped with a heterogeneous sampled imaging system, a fovea, resembling the varying resolution in a human retina. READ MORE

  2. 2. From Human to Robot Grasping

    Author : Javier Romero; Danica Kragic; Jana Kosecka; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; computer vision; hand tracking; hand pose estimation; human-to-robot mapping; robotics; grasping; modeling; human action modeling; dimensionality reduction; taxonomy; corrective movements; visual servoing;

    Abstract : Imagine that a robot fetched this thesis for you from a book shelf. How doyou think the robot would have been programmed? One possibility is thatexperienced engineers had written low level descriptions of all imaginabletasks, including grasping a small book from this particular shelf. READ MORE

  3. 3. Learning Object Properties From Manipulation for Manipulation

    Author : Püren Güler; Danica Kragic; Jeremy L. Wyatt; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; robotics; manipulation; object properties; simulation; machine learning; object tracking; active exploration; sensory integration; Computer Science; Datalogi;

    Abstract : The world contains objects with various properties - rigid, granular, liquid, elastic or plastic. As humans, while interacting with the objects, we plan our manipulation by considering their properties. For instance, while holding a rigid object such as a brick, we adapt our grasp based on its centre of mass not to drop it. READ MORE

  4. 4. Shape Based Recognition – Cognitive Vision Systems in Traffic Safety Applications

    Author : Fredrik Larsson; Michael Felsberg; Per-Erik Forssén; Ales Leonardis; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : Traffic accidents are globally the number one cause of death for people 15-29 years old and is among the top three causes for all age groups 5-44 years. Much of the work within this thesis has been carried out in projects aiming for (cognitive) driver assistance systems and hopefully represents a step towards improving traffic safety. READ MORE

  5. 5. On Robotic Work-Space Sensing and Control

    Author : Magnus Linderoth; Institutionen för reglerteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Robotics; computer vision; color constancy; motion blur; filter initialization; visual tracking; on-line trajectory generation; ball-catching robot; force control; robotic assembly; force estimation; perception-action capabilities.;

    Abstract : Industrial robots are fast and accurate when working with known objects at precise locations in well-structured manufacturing environments, as done in the classical automation setting. In one sense, limited use of sensors leaves robots blind and numb, unaware of what is happening in their surroundings. READ MORE
