Visual contact estimation

McCarthy, Christopher Darryl


A fundamental capability of any navigation system is the perception of potential contact with surfaces in the environment. The efficiency and robustness of natural vision has motivated the development of biologically-inspired approaches to achieve this. Biological studies have highlighted the importance of visual motion (as perceived via optical flow) in the guidance of animal action. However, the use of optical flow in robot navigation systems remains problematic, impeded by measurement noise,...[Show more]
