Abstract:

Robots are increasing their effects across various domains of manufacturing, services, medical, space and defense. In this talk, I will discuss robot vision which is one of the key parts of controlling a robot. Robot vision must be able to adapt to different environments and its output must be robust to dynamic changes. I will present work related to pose estimation of objects for manipulation tasks, fusion of sensor information from multiple sensors, appearance-based gesture recognition for basic robot interaction and the applications of these methods on real robots.
