  • Govender, N; Claassens, J; Nicolls, F; Warrell, J (IEEE Xplore, 2013-01)
    For mobile robots to perform certain tasks in human environments, fast and accurate object classification is essential. Actively exploring objects by changing viewpoints promises an increase in the accuracy of object ...
  • Pancham, A; Tlale, N; Bright, G (2012-11)
    Simultaneous Localization And Mapping (SLAM) allows a mobile robot to construct a map of an unknown, static environment and simultaneously localize itself. Real world environments, however, have dynamic objects such as ...
  • Pancham, A; Tlale, N; Bright, G (CSIR, 2011-10)
    This work involves the development of algorithms for the implementation of multiple Kinect sensors for SLAM and DATMO. The algorithms will allow the mobile robot to navigate in a dynamic environment and simutaneously create ...
  • Withey, Daniel J (CSIR, 2015-10)
    Computer vision systems are essential for practical, autonomous, mobile robots – machines that employ artificial intelligence and control their own motion within an environment. As with biological systems, computer vision ...
  • Sabatta, DG (2009-11)
    Before a robot may be classed as an autonomous system, it must be able to move unaided in an environment. In a known environment or with pre-recorded trajectories, this reduces to the problem of path following. In order ...
  • De Villiers, M (University of KwaZulu-Natal, 2011-02)
    This research project proposes the development of an autonomous, omnidirectional vehicle that will be used for general indoor service applications. A suggested trial application for this service robot will be to deliver ...
  • 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 ...
  • Pancham, A; Tlale, N; Bright, G (RobMech 2011, 2011-11)
    Simultaneous Localization And Mapping (SLAM) allows a mobile robot to be completely autonomous in an unknown environment and perform its tasks. The robot is able to create a map of its environment and at the same time ...
  • Pancham, A; Tlale, N; Bright, G (2012-10)
    In order for mobile robots to operate in dynamic or real world environments they must be able to localise themselves while building a map of the environment, and detect and track moving objects. This work involves the ...
  • 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 ...
  • Govender, N; Warrell, J; Torr, P; Nicolls, F (2013-09)
    For mobile robots to perform certain tasks in human environments, fast and accurate object verification and recognition is essential. Bayesian approaches to active object recognition have proved effective in a number of ...
  • Mtshali, M; Engelbrecht, A (Defence Scientific Information & Documentation Centre (DESIDOC), 2010-01)
    In the development of mobile robotic systems, a robotic architecture plays a crucial role in interconnecting all the sub-systems and controlling the system. The design of robotic architectures for mobile autonomous robots ...
  • Pancham, A; Withey, Daniel J; Bright, G (IEEE Xplore, 2015-05)
    The tracking of moving points in image sequences requires unique features that can be easily distinguished. However, traditional feature descriptors are of high dimension, leading to larger storage requirement and slower ...
