Indeed, cameras and microphones are far less obtrusive with respect to the hindrance other wearable sensors may cause to one's activities. In addition, a single [...]  ...  Nevertheless, to ensure the uptake of AAL in society, potential users must be willing to use AAL applications and to integrate them in their daily environments and lives.  ...  On the other side, the use of one single camera in a stationary environment can lead to a restriction in perspective [IV.416].  ...

Teleoperation of a humanoid robot using oculus rift and leap motion

Matthias Hirschmanner, Markus Vincze, Michael Zillich
Because of the many degrees of freedom of humanoid robots, manual teleoperation methods with keyboards, joysticks and screens are cumbersome to use.  ...  This thesis presents a system to operate a humanoid robot from a distance. Teleoperated robots are used in environments inaccessible to humans for tasks which cannot be performed autonomously.  ...  It uses an infrared projector which emits an infrared pattern and an infrared camera to acquire a depth image. The obtained data is used to map the movements of the user to a virtual skeleton.  ...

Real-time Autonomous Robot Navigation System with Collision Avoidance for NAO Robot

Oluwadamilola I Saka
The path to move from the current position to the destination is solved using a search algorithm. The robot moves along the defined path by the walking controller module.  ...  It integrates image and depth-based environmental perception, path planning, and walking control of the NAO humanoid robot for navigation in unknown terrains.  ...  All of these currently gets outputed as raw text printed out in the console which can be tedious to monitor.  ...

Trajectory Prediction with Event-Based Cameras for Robotics Applications

This thesis presents the study, analysis, and implementation of a framework to perform trajectory prediction using an event-based camera for robotics applications.  ...  In the same way, predicting the trajectory or the end-point of a moving target allows a robot to plan for appropriate actions and their timing in advance, interacting with it in many different manners.  ...  To this purpose, the pipeline I imagined uses one of the two event-based ATIS cameras [4] mounted in the neuromorphic iCub [5, 163] humanoid robot for data acquisition.  ...

Real-time depth imaging

Uwe Hahne, Technische Universität Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, Marc Alexa
However, the measurement contains several error sources. We present approaches to indicate measurement errors and to determine the reliability of the data from these sensors.  ...  We examine to what extend time-of-flight (ToF) cameras are able to provide reliable depth images in real-time.  ...  In order to determine the position of the robot (and hence the camera) the captured depth maps have to be registered. One way of registering is the alignment of point clouds.  ...

Robot grasping by exploiting compliance and environmental constraints

Clemens Eppner, Technische Universität Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, Oliver Brock
In this thesis, we exploit two general properties to devise grasp planning algorithms: the compliance of robot hands and the stiffness of the environment that surrounds an object.  ...  Based on this insight, we devise two grasp planning algorithms which map compliance modes to raw sensor signals using minimal prior knowledge.  ...  Depth Primitive As we are using an eye-in-hand setting with a monocular camera, we are lacking instantaneous depth information.  ...
