Oct. 7, 2013 — Object recognition is one of the most widely studied problems in computer vision. But a robot that manipulates objects in the world needs to do more than just recognize them; it also needs to understand their orientation. Is that mug right-side up or upside-down? And which direction is its handle facing?
To improve robots’ ability to gauge object orientation, Jared Glover, a graduate student in MIT’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, is exploiting a statistical construct called the Bingham distribution. . . . Read Complete Report
ENB339 lecture 1: Introduction to robot vision
Published on Sep 3, 2012
QUT ENB339 Lecture 2/1.
In this lecture we discuss the problem of sensing for robots, absolute and relative, and the particular advantages of vision for animals and robots. We then have a brief introduction to using MATLAB and the Machine Vision Toolbox for some simple image processing applications.
