  • Burke, Michael G; Brink, W (PRASA 2010, 2010-11)
    This paper presents a monocular vision-based technique for extracting orientation information from a human torso for use in a robotic human-follower. Typical approaches to human-following use an estimate of only human ...
  • Burke, Michael G (PRASA 2009, 2009-11)
    This poster presents a visual servo approach to straight line range and velocity regulation. The difference in velocity between a lead mobile robot and a follower is regulated through velocity control of the follower, in ...
  • Burke, Michael G; Brink, W (2011-08)
    This paper presents a gain-scheduling controller for a human-following robot. Typical controllers use either a point-to-point approach where the relative orientation between human and platform is uncontrolled, or a ...
  • Burke, Michael G (PRASA 2010, 2010-11)
    The reliable detection and tracking of general objects is required by many field robotics applications, where autonomous agents need to navigate between and interact with dynamic targets in unstructured environments. This ...
  • Burke, Michael G; Bos, N (2011-11)
    The ability of an agent to self-localise is crucial to any autonomous task where mobility is required. A common set of techniques solving the localisation problem involve the deployment of active beacons or landmarks, which ...
  • Burke, Michael G; Lasenby, J (IEEE Xplore, 2015-10)
    This paper introduces a pantomimic gesture interface, which classifies human hand gestures using unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) behavior recordings as training data. We argue that pantomimic gestures are more intuitive than ...
  • Burke, Michael G; Sabatta, D (2009-11)
    Global Positioning Systems (GPS) provide an effective means of outdoor localisation. Unfortunately they are subject to a variety of errors, particularly in cluttered environments where GPS signal is not always available. ...
  • Burke, Michael G; Sabatta, D (PRASA, 2015-11)
    Conference scheduling and organising is a particularly laborious task and can be exteremely time consuming. While many online conference platforms allow manual topic selection, these can be expensive and typically still ...
