    • Ultra high frequency (UHF) radio-frequency identification (RFID) for robot perception and mobile manipulation 

      Deyle, Travis (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-11-14)
      Personal robots with autonomy, mobility, and manipulation capabilities have the potential to dramatically improve quality of life for various user populations, such as older adults and individuals with motor impairments. ...
    • Uncalibrated robotic visual servo tracking for large residual problems 

      Munnae, Jomkwun (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-11-17)
      In visually guided control of a robot, a large residual problem occurs when the robot configuration is not in the neighborhood of the target acquisition configuration. Most existing uncalibrated visual servoing algorithms ...
    • Understanding older adults' perceptions of usefulness of an assistive home robot 

      Beer, Jenay M. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-11-21)
      Developing robots that are useful to older adults is more than simply creating robots that complete household tasks. To ensure that older adults perceive a robot to be useful, careful consideration of the users’ capabilities, ...
    • Understanding the construct of human trust in domestic service robots 

      Olson, Katherine E. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-11-18)
      Simple robots are already being deployed and adopted by some consumers for use at home. The robots currently in development for home use are far more sophisticated. However, it was not know the extent to which humans ...
    • Universal motion-based control and motion recognition 

      Chen, Mingyu (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-08-29)
      In this dissertation, we propose a universal motion-based control framework that supports general functionalities on 2D and 3D user interfaces with a single integrated design. We develop a hybrid framework of optical and ...
    • Using multiple agents in uncertainty minimization of ablating target sources 

      Coogle, Richard A. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-09-05)
      The objective of this research effort is to provide an efficient methodology for a multi-agent robotic system to observe moving targets that are generated from an ablation process. An ablation process is a process where a ...
    • Vision-based place categorization 

      Bormann, Richard Klaus Eduard (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-11-18)
      In this thesis we investigate visual place categorization by combining successful global image descriptors with a method of visual attention in order to automatically detect meaningful objects for places. The idea behind ...
    • Visual arctic navigation: techniques for autonomous agents in glacial environments 

      Williams, Stephen Vincent (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-06-15)
      Arctic regions are thought to be more sensitive to climate change fluctuations, making weather data from these regions more valuable for climate modeling. Scientists have expressed an interest in deploying a robotic sensor ...
    • Visual object perception in unstructured environments 

      Choi, Changhyun (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-08-25)
      As robotic systems move from well-controlled settings to increasingly unstructured environments, they are required to operate in highly dynamic and cluttered scenarios. Finding an object, estimating its pose, and tracking ...
    • Visual place categorization 

      Wu, Jianxin (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-07-06)
      Knowing the semantic category of a robot's current position not only facilitates the robot's navigation, but also greatly improves its ability to serve human needs and to interpret the scene. Visual Place Categorization ...
