    • Toward Dynamic, Tactical, Remote Robotic Ops: Active Perception and Other Key Technologies 

      Buerger, Stephen (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-11-13)
      Dynamic, tactical, remote operations in which unmanned systems must manage multiple, changing objectives in uncertain, evolving and potentially adversarial environments, without the benefit of prior scripting, present an ...
    • Toward Robots that Understand People and Their Environment 

      Fox, Dieter (2016-09-21)
      To interact and collaborate with people in a natural way, robots must be able to recognize objects in their environments, accurately track the actions of humans, and estimate their goals and intentions. The last years have ...
    • Towards an Integrated Architecture for Open-World Human-Robot Interactions 

      Scheutz, Matthias (2016-01-27)
      “Open-world” human-robot interactions differ significantly from “closed-world” human-robot interactions because not all task-relevant information is available at the beginning of the interaction in the former (while it is ...
    • Towards Robust HRI: A Stochastic Optimization Approach 

      Nikolaidis, Stefanos (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2021-03-31)
      The growth of scale and complexity of interactions between humans and robots highlights the need for new computational methods to automatically evaluate novel algorithms and applications. Exploring the diverse scenarios ...
    • Towards Visual Route Following for Mobile Robots…Forever! 

      Barfoot, Tim (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-03-20)
      In this talk I will describe a particular approach to visual route following for mobile robots that we have developed, called Visual Teach & Repeat (VT&R), and what I think the next steps are to make this system usable in ...
    • Tractability and Attention: Key Roles in Robotic Visual Search 

      Tsotsos, John K. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-03-05)
      Visual search for objects, locations, or events of interest is a central capability for a robot with real-world utility. This capability cannot be limited to yes-no detection; it must include an ability to measure, describe, ...
    • Transformations and Frontiers in Robot Motion and Manipulation 

      Berenson, Dmitry (2015-01-14)
      Robotics is undergoing three transformations, which are changing our research focus and opening doors to new applications. The need for robotic manipulation in unstructured environments, human-robot collaborative systems, ...
    • Turning Assistive Machines into Assistive Robots 

      Argall, Brenna D. (2015-01-21)
      For decades, the potential for automation—in particular, in the form of smart wheelchairs—to aid those with motor or cognitive impairments, has been recognized. It is a paradox that often the more severe a person's motor ...
    • Uniting Robots and Ultrasound for Cardiac Repair 

      Howe, Robert (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-10-09)
      Minimally invasive techniques have revolutionized many areas of surgery, but heart surgery has seen limited progress. We are working to combine ultrasound imaging and robotic manipulation to enable cardiac procedures that ...
    • University of Michigan’s Work Toward Autonomous Cars 

      Eustice, Ryan M. (2016-04-20)
      Self-driving test vehicles have become a reality on roadways, and there is an ever-present push toward making them a consumer product in the not-so-distant future. In this talk, I will give an overview of some of our ...
    • Video Synopsis 

      Peleg, Shmuel (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-02-03)
      Surveillance video is practically never used because there are too many hours of video for people to watch. Most attempts to deal with the overflow of surveillance video involve the development of automatic video understanding, ...
    • Virtual Reality: Full Steam Ahead 

      LaValle, Steven M. (2014-09-05)
      Using the latest technology, we can safely hijack your most trusted senses, thereby fooling your brain into believing you are in another world. Virtual reality (VR) has been around for a long time, but due to the ...
    • Vision Based Navigation and Tracking with Small UAVs 

      Beard, Randal W. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-11-01)
      This talk will describe our current work on vision-based autonomous navigation and tracking using small UAVs and provide an overview of two ongoing projects. The first project is relative navigation in GPS degraded ...
    • Vision-Based Monitoring of Behavioral Disorders 

      Papanikolopoulos, Nikolaos P. (2016-01-13)
      This work involves algorithms to assist with the early diagnosis of children who are at risk of developing behavioral disorders. Previous research has indicated that two critical areas of behavioral investigation for use ...
    • Visual Search and Summarization 

      Grauman, Kristen (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-03-06)
      Widespread visual sensors and unprecedented connectivity have left us awash with visual data---from online photo collections, home videos, news footage, medical images, or surveillance feeds. How can we efficiently browse ...
    • Weakly Supervised Learning from Images and Video 

      Laptev, Ivan (2016-09-30)
      Recent progress in visual recognition goes hand-in-hand with the supervised learning and large-scale training data. While the amount of existing images and videos is huge, their detailed annotation is expensive and often ...
