Abstract

In this paper we present a summary of some of the research that we are developing in the Institute of Robotics of the CSIC-UPC, in the field of Learning and Robot Vision for autonomous mobile robots. We describe the problems that we have found and some solutions that have been applied in two issues: tracking objects and learning and recognition of 3D objects in robotic environments. We will explain some of the results accomplished.

Keywords

Random Graph Stereo Vision Object Surface Attribute Graph Face Tracking 
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.
