  • Monte Carlo Pose Estimation with Quaternion Kernels and the Bingham Distribution

    The success of personal service robotics hinges upon reliable manipulation of everyday household objects, such as dishes, bottles, containers, and furniture. In order to accurately manipulate such objects, robots need to know objects' full 6-DOF pose, which is made difficult by clutter and occlusions. Many household objects have regular structure that can be used to effectively guess object pose given an observation of just a small patch on the object. In this paper, we present a new method to model the spatial distribution of oriented local features on an object, which we use to infer object pose given small sets of observed local features. The orientation distribution for local features is given by a mixture of Binghams on the hypersphere of unit quaternions, while the local feature distribution for position given orientation is given by a locally-weighted (Quaternion kernel) likelihood. Experiments on 3D point cloud data of cluttered and uncluttered scenes generated from a structured light stereo image sensor validate our approach.

  • Model-Based Proprioceptive State Estimation for Spring-Mass Running

    Autonomous applications of legged platforms will inevitably require accurate state estimation both for feedback control as well as mapping and planning. Even though kinematic models and low-bandwidth visual localization may be sufficient for fully-actuated, statically stable legged robots, they are inadequate for dynamically dexterous, underactuated platforms where second order dynamics are dominant, noise levels are high and sensory limitations are more severe. In this paper, we introduce a model based state estimation method for dynamic running behaviors with a simple spring-mass runner. By using an approximate analytic solution to the dynamics of the model within an Extended Kalman filter framework, the estimation accuracy of our model remains accurate even at low sampling frequencies. We also propose two new event-based sensory modalities that further improve estimation performance in cases where even the internal kinematics of a robot cannot be fully observed, such as when flexible materials are used for limb designs. We present comparative simulation results to establish that our method outperforms traditional approaches which rely on constant acceleration motion models and that it eliminates the need for an extensive and unrealistic sensor suite.

  • Digital Hologram Processing in On-Axis Holography

    In the context of fast and 3D quantitative microscopy, on-axis digital holography has a significant potential. This chapter focuses on the numerical reconstruction of digital holograms. After a presentation of classical back- propagation methods, we introduce the general framework of inverse problems that includes recent compressive sensing methods. Inverse problems approaches solve two essential issues in digital holography: the improvement of reconstruction accuracy and the extension of the studied field beyond the physical limit of the sensor size. In addition, the achievable resolution can be derived from the hologram formation model using Cramer-Rao lower bounds. As a drawback of reconstruction methods based on inverse problems is their computational complexity, we suggest two ways to significantly reduce the processing time of holograms.

  • Super-Flexible Skin Sensors Embedded on the Whole Body, Self-Organizing Based on Haptic Interactions

    As robots become more ubiquitous in our daily lives, humans and robots are working in ever-closer physical proximity to each other. These close physical distances change the nature of human robot interaction considerably. First, it becomes more important to consider safety, in case robots accidentally touch (or hit) the humans. Second, touch (or haptic) feedback from humans can be a useful additional channel for communication, and is a particularly natural one for humans to utilize. Covering the whole robot body with malleable tactile sensors can help to address the safety issues while providing a new communication interface. First, soft, compliant surfaces are less dangerous in the event of accidental human contact. Second, flexible sensors are capable of distinguishing many different types of touch (e.g., hard v.s. gentle stroking). Since soft skin on a robot tends to invite humans to engage in even more touch interactions, it is doubly important that the robot can process haptic feedback from humans. In this paper, we discuss attempts to solve some of the difficult new technical and information processing challenges presented by flexible touch sensitive skin. Our approach is based on a method for sensors to self-organize into sensor banks for classification of touch interactions. This is useful for distributed processing and helps to reduce the maintenance problems of manually configuring large numbers of sensors. We found that using sparse sensor banks containing as little as 15% of the full sensor set it is possible to classify interaction scenarios with accuracy up to 80% in a 15-way forced choice task. Visualization of the learned subspaces shows that, for many categories of touch interactions, the learned sensor banks are composed mainly of physically local sensor groups. These results are promising and suggest that our proposed method can be effectively used for automatic analysis of touch behaviors in more complex tasks.

  • Recognition and Pose Estimation of Rigid Transparent Objects with a Kinect Sensor

    Recognizing and determining the 6DOF pose of transparent objects is necessary in order for robots to manipulate such objects. However, it is a challenging problem for computer vision. We propose new algorithms for segmentation, pose estimation and recognition of transparent objects from a single RGB-D image from a Kinect sensor. Kinect's weakness in the perception of transparent objects is exploited in their segmentation. Following segmentation, edge fitting is used for recognition and pose estimation. A 3D model of the object is created automatically during training and it is required for pose estimation and recognition. The algorithm is evaluated in different conditions of a domestic environment within the framework of a robotic grasping pipeline where it demonstrates high grasping success rates compared to the state-of- the-art results. The method doesn't deal with occlusions and overlapping transparent objects currently but it is robust against non-transparent clutter.

  • Information Trade-Offs and the Evolution of Sensory Layouts

    In nature, sensors evolve to capture relevant information needed for organisms of a particular species to survive and reproduce. In this paper we study how sensor layouts may evolve in different environments and under pressure of different informational constraints. To do this we evolve sensor layouts for different environments and constraints using a fitness measure with weighted terms for redundancy and novelty, using, respectively, mutual information and Crutchfield's information metric. The results show how different sensor layouts evolve depending on the structure and complexity of the environment but also how selective pressure for redundancy or novelty might affect the design.

  • On information invariants in robotics

    We consider the problem of determining the information requirements to perform robot tasks, using the concept of information invariants. This paper represents our attempt to characterize a family of complicated and subtle issues concerned with measuring robot task complexity. We also provide a first approximation to a purely operational theory that addresses a narrow but interesting special case. We discuss several measures for the information complexity of a task: (a) How much internal state should the robot retain? (b) How many cooperating agents are required, and how much communication between them is necessary? (e) How can the robot change (side-effect) the environment in order to record state or sensory information to perform a task? (d) How much information is provided by sensors? and (e) How much computation is required by the robot? We consider how one might develop a kind of "calculus" on (a)-(e) in order to compare the power of sensor systems analytically. To this end, we attempt to develop a notion of information invariants. We develop a theory whereby one sensor can be "reduced" to another (much in the spirit of computation-theoretic reductions), by adding, deleting, and reallocating (a)-(e) among collaborating autonomous agents.
