Investigators: Prof. Kenneth P. Camilleri, Mr. Michael Sapienza

The objective of this project is to develop a vision system for a mobile robot that may be used to guide the robot in an unknown indoor or outdoor environment and allow the robot to explore the environment autonomously. Robots that make use of vision may be able to extract long-range information and high-level semantics from the environment and direct their movement accordingly, affording more intelligent robot guidance. Currently this work is investigating the potential of a real-time mobile robot vision system that makes use of a relatively low-quality monocular camera. The technique that is currently being explored analyses image features and uses an iterative probabilistic framework to identify traversable ground area and to direct the robot towards open traversable areas avoiding static or dynamic obstacles.
