Towards Robust Object Categorization for Mobile Robots with Combination of Classifiers [chapter]

Christian A. Mueller, Nico Hochgeschwender, Paul G. Ploeger
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
An efficient object perception is a crucial component of a mobile service robot. In this work we present a solution for visual categorization of objects.  ...  We developed a prototypic categorization system which classifies unknown objects based on their visual properties to a corresponding category of predefined domestic object categories.  ...  In many cases objects play a central role in these activities and thus a service robot must be able to detect and classify known and unknown objects in such domestic environments.  ...
