Title: Making robots intelligent through vision
An intelligent mobile robot is sensorimotor machine that autonomously operates in an unknown, unpredicted world. To achieve such capability, the robot is equipped with a variety of sensors to perceive and understand its surroundings, being vision one of the most powerful and affordable sensing modalities for that. This talk will cover the main issues in robotics vision, including obstacle detection, localization and semantic mapping. Particularly, we will review the challenging visual SLAM problem which tries to build a map of the environment while the robot estimates its pose (position and orientation) from a sequence of images provided by a camera onboard.
