The Australian Centre of Excellence for Robotic Vision will play a key role in developing the underlying science and technologies that will enable robots to see, to understand their environment using the sense of vision, and to perform useful tasks in the complex, unstructured and dynamically changing environments in which we live and work.
The overarching goal of my iCub related research is to create robots with more autonomous and more adaptive behaviours, leading to more `intelligent´ robots. The research at the intersection between the Machine Learning and robotics, tries to first make the iCub see. That is, developing computer vision algorithms for object detection.
icVision is an easy-to-use, modular framework performing computer vision related tasks in support of cognitive robotics research on the iCub humanoid robot. The system currently allows object recognition, identification and localisation. One of the main design goals is to allow rapid ...
