After introducing the reader to the set of tools encompassing probabilistic approaches for robotic perception, we are now in the position of coming full circle regarding our introductory consideration of Chapter 1.


Bayesian Approach Bayesian Model Probabilistic Approach Probabilistic Neural Network Bayesian Computation 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
