Detecting Zero-Moment Point in Legged Robot
The study of Zero-moment point (ZMP) in ROBOCLIMBER (quadruped walking and climbing robot) was realized and calculated in real time during statically postural and dynamically balanced gait. Force sensor with strain gages ...
Outdoor stairway segmentation using vertical vanishing point and directional filter
In this paper we propose to detect the localization and recognition of outdoor stairway. This problem is the most fundamental step in solving the problem of autonomous stair climbing navigation. An autonomous system must ...
Camera and laser range finder fusion for real-time car detection
This paper describes a car detection method by combining data obtained from a laser and a camera. Data from the camera and the laser range finder (LRF) are combined after a calibration method has been performed. The ...
Vision-based heading angle estimation for an autonomous mobile robots navigation
Autonomous mobile robots navigation and control systems are still hugely important in real time robotic applications. When moving towards fully autonomous navigation, guidance plays a vital task for successful autonomous ...
3D motion estimation based on pitch and azimuth from respective camera and laser rangefinder sensing
This paper proposes a new method to estimate the 3D motion of a vehicle based on car-like structured motion model using an omnidirectional camera and a laser rangefinder. In recent years, motion estimation using vision ...
Adding extra sensitivity to the SMART non‐linear actuator using sensor fusion
(Industrial Robot: The International Journal Of Robotics Research And Application, 03/01/2004)
The prospect of using humanoid robots in practical applications attracts an important research effort and the latest steps forward in robot technology show many remarkable achievements where design aspects, control systems ...
