    • Optical flow templates for mobile robot environment understanding 

      Roberts, Richard Joseph William (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-10-01)
      In this work we develop optical flow templates. In doing so, we introduce a practical tool for inferring robot egomotion and semantic superpixel labeling using optical flow in imaging systems with arbitrary optics. In order ...
    • Performance and Use Evaluation of an Electronic Book for Introductory Python Programming 

      Alvarado, Christine; Morrison, Briana; Ericson, Barbara; Guzdial, Mark; Miller, Brad; Ranum, David L. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012)
      Electronic books (ebooks) provide the opportunity to go beyond the limitations of a physical page. These opportunities are particularly important for computing education, where dynamic information is a key characteristic ...
    • Physics-based reinforcement learning for autonomous manipulation 

      Scholz, Jonathan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-08-21)
      With recent research advances, the dream of bringing domestic robots into our everyday lives has become more plausible than ever. Domestic robotics has grown dramatically in the past decade, with applications ranging from ...
    • Real Synthetic Scholarship 

      Best, Michael L.; Wilson, Ernest J., III (Georgia Institute of TechnologyUniversity of Southern California, Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism, 2007)
    • Remixing Authorship: Reconfiguring the Author in Online Video Remix Culture 

      Diakopoulos, Nicholas; Luther, Kurt; Medynskiy, Yevgeniy (Eugene); Essa, Irfan A. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007)
      In an abstract sense, authorship entails the constrained selection or generation of media and the organization and layout of that media in a larger structure. But authorship is more than just selection and organization; ...
    • Representing and learning affordance-based behaviors 

      Hermans, Tucker Ryer (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-03-27)
      Autonomous robots deployed in complex, natural human environments such as homes and offices need to manipulate numerous objects throughout their deployment. For an autonomous robot to operate effectively in such a setting ...
    • Representing and reasoning about videogame mechanics for automated design support 

      Nelson, Mark J. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-05-14)
      Videogame designers hope to sculpt gameplay, but actually work in the concrete medium of computation. What they create is code, artwork, dialogue---everything that goes inside a videogame cartridge. In other materially ...
    • A Robotic System for Autonomous Medication and Water Delivery 

      Emeli, Victor; Wagner, Alan R.; Kemp, Charles C. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012)
      Poor medication adherence and dehydration are well-documented challenges for older adults living independently that lead to reduced quality of life. Robotic delivery of pills and water in the home could potentially ...
    • Robots learning actions and goals from everyday people 

      Akgun, Baris (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-11-16)
      Robots are destined to move beyond the caged factory floors towards domains where they will be interacting closely with humans. They will encounter highly varied environments, scenarios and user demands. As a result, ...
    • SAM: Steady Affine Motions 

      Rossignac, Jaroslaw R.; Vinacua, Àlvar (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-11-23)
      An affine motion is a continuous map from time value t to an affinity A subscript t. It is a SAM (Steady Affine Motion), when A subscript t = A superscript t. Although the beauty of a motion is subjective, the above equation ...
    • Semantic mapping for service robots: building and using maps for mobile manipulators in semi-structured environments 

      Trevor, Alexander J. B. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-04-08)
