Using Stereo Vision to Operate Mobile Telepresence Robots

The use of mobile telepresence robots (MTRs) is increasing. Very few MTRs have autonomous navigation systems. Thus teleoperation is usually still a manual task, and often has user experience problems. We believe that this may be due to (1) the fixed viewpoint and limited field of view of a 2D camera system and (2) the […] → Read More: Using Stereo Vision to Operate Mobile Telepresence Robots

More evidence of the value of HMD capture

At next week’s CSCW 2015 conference, a group from University of Wisconsin-Madison will present an interesting piece of work related to the last post: “Handheld or Handsfree? Remote Collaboration via Lightweight Head-Mounted Displays and Handheld Devices”. Similar to our work, the authors compared the use of Google Glass to a tablet-based interface for two different […] → Read More: More evidence of the value of HMD capture

How to Take a 3D Selfie with an Autonomous Drone

In this video, our drone autonomously flyes over a person and takes 3D scan of it. Suddently, the person starts to move, trying to disturb the drone. However, our robust visual odometry and probabilistic dense reconstruction algorithms do not get distu… → Read More: How to Take a 3D Selfie with an Autonomous Drone

Computer vision is not an easy task

In the 60s, Marvin Minsky assigned a couple of undergrads to spend the summer programming a computer to use a camera to identify objects in a scene. He figured they’d have the problem solved by the end of the summer. Half a century later, we’re sti… → Read More: Computer vision is not an easy task

From feature descriptors to deep learning: 20 years of computer vision

Article from http://quantombone.blogspot.com/ We all know that deep convolutional neural networks have produced some stellar results on object detection and recognition benchmarks in the past two years (2012-2014), so you might wonder: what did the ear… → Read More: From feature descriptors to deep learning: 20 years of computer vision
