Overview

Ⅰ. Title

Development of robust vision technology for object recognition and shape modeling of intelligent robots



Ⅱ. Objectives

This research aims the development of robust and stable robot vision technology for object recognition and its real-time implementation. Furthermore, the robustness and usefulness of the developed technology is demonstrated by integrating the developed technologies to a practical mobile robot, which works under a general environment. 


Ⅲ. Contents and Range

At the first step, we study some features which are robust and invariant to the environmental change and an object recognition methodology based on these feature. At the next step, a robust robot recognition technology which can be used for uncontrolled working spaces and a high-speed modular model are developed based on the vision technologies. 

1) Robust and functional object recognition technology of intelligent robots
    : Learning-based 3D object recognition
    : DB generating mechanism for unlearned objects 

2) Space recognition using real-time omnidirectional 3D sensor
    : Automatic SLAM technology
    : SLAM based on the integration of various information in a scene

3) High-speed modular model of robot vision technology
    : Hardware-level implementation of low-level processing
    : Integration of high-level HW/SW systems

4) Unified framework of space/object recognition
    : Analysis of the connection between space and object recognition
    : Development of the unified framework


After the developed technologies are applied to a mobile robot, we examine the robustness of the technologies to various illumination and geometrical/material changes during the second step of the project.


Ⅳ. Results

The research achievements are classified into several groups:
 1) Modeling of the environmental change
 2) Robust feature based on the human visual system
 3) Space/object recognition
 4) SLAM and autonomous navigation of a mobile robot
 5) Improvement of robustness through noise modeling and error compensation
 6) High-speed vision
 7) Integrated intelligent mobile robot platform.
 
 In 1) modeling of the environmental change, AIL(Automated Imaging Lab.) is constructed and technologies for chromaticity estimation and camera calibration technique are developed.

 In 2) robust feature based on the human visual system, RIF(Robust Invariant Feature) is developed based on feature signature tracking and is generalized into GRIF(Generalized Robust Invariant Feature). In addition, technologies for visual correspondence search are developed by utilizing Gestalt principals of human visual system.

 In 3) space/object recognition, ROI(Region of Interest) extraction and tracking, GRIF and contextual information based recognition, 3D object recognition using view clustering, and the unified object recognition framework are developed as an object recognition technology. For space recognition, appearance-cloning based on multiple views and probabilistic model, 3D modeling using a catadioptric camera, 3D reconstruction and modeling using internet images, infinite homography estimation, semi-metric space reconstruction, and specular component removal technology are established. Scene interpretation by multilayered context information, hierarchical map building and self-localization based on object recognition and co-segmentation of common objects in multiple images using feature transformations are also developed.

 In 4) SLAM and autonomous navigation of a mobile robot, SLAM using single, stereo and catadioptric cameras, motion estimation and high-precision 3D reconstruction by camera-laser sensor fusion, autonomous navigation for mobile robot and UAV attitude estimation using catadioptric images are developed.

 In 5) improvement of robustness through noise modeling and error compensation, accurate noise modeling based on new probabilistic model and robot localization error compensation are investigated for low-level and high-level vision technologies, respectively. The performance of visual correspondence search is also enhanced by resolving a point ambiguity. Low-level vision processes are implemented on a  FPGA-based system and hierarchically organized feature transform is developed for  6) high-speed vision.
 Based on obtained technologies, 7) integrated intelligent mobile robot platform is being developed.

ⅤI. Expectation

Robust robot recognition technology is applicable in robot and multi-media industries as a core element. The market for intelligent robots starting with $1.5 billion in 2003 has been expected to expand more than 10 times larger. Therefore the development of robust robot recognition technology, which is the core of intelligent mobile robots, is being expected to be a highly-profitable model. Moreover, enhancing productivity through the modulization can provide a prior occupation for the global market which has a strong growth potential.
