1. A local map was built around the OMW by using range sensors. This local map allows knowing the distance from the OMW to the surrounding obstacles in a circle with a radius of 3 [m]. The information provided by the local map, as well as the information of velocity of the OMW were used for...
A study based on a computer's interaction with its users in a way similar to human-to-human interaction to construct a robust, real-time, fully automatic system to track the facial features and expressions of humans.
A study in the use of video systems to robotic applications. This application is referred to as the “Artificial Vision”. Artificial vision is a robot's sense of "sight" that allows it to respond to what it sees without human intervention.
A brief overview on the utilization of Minimum-Energy Motion with the use of differential-driven wheeled mobile robots to exploration, search and rescue, reconnaissance, security, military, rehabilitation, cleaning, and personal service applications.
