  • Aerodynamic evaluation of four butterfly species for the design of flapping-gliding robotic insects

    Publication Year: 2012, Page(s):1102 - 1109

    Alternating gliding and active propulsion is a potentially energy saving strategy for small-scale flight. With the goal of finding optimal wing shapes for flapping-gliding robots we evaluate the quasi-steady aerodynamic performance of four butterfly species (Monarch (Danaus plexippus), the Orange Aeroplane (Pantoporia consimilis), the Glasswing (Acraea andromacha) and the Four-barred Swordtail (Pr...

    This paper introduces a novel climbing robot with high maneuverability for inspection of ferromagnetic 3D human made structures. The robot takes advantage of novelties which allows an excellent maneuverability on the structure and can adapt to flat and non-flat structures. In this paper we present the conceptual and detailed design of the robot, the implementation and two tests: laboratory tests o... View full abstract»

  • A multi-cue approach for stereo-based object confidence estimation

    Publication Year: 2012, Page(s):3055 - 3060
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1374 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this contribution we present an approach to compute object confidences for stereo-vision-based object tracking schemes. Meaningful object confidences help to reduce false alarm rates of safety systems and improve the downstream system performance for modules such as sensor fusion and situation analysis. Several cues from stereo vision and from the tracking process are fused in a Bayesian manner... View full abstract»

  • Birth intensity online estimation in GM-PHD filter for multi-target visual tracking

    Multi-target tracking in video is a challenge due to noisy video data, varying number of targets, and the data association problems. In this paper, a multi-target visual tracking system that incorporates object detection with the Gaussian mixture PHD filter is developed. The main contribution of this paper is to propose a new birth intensity online estimation method that based on the entropy distr... View full abstract»

  • Switching-based mapping and control for haptic teleoperation of aerial robots

    Publication Year: 2012, Page(s):2629 - 2634

    This paper deals with the bilateral teleoperation of underactuated aerial robots by means of a haptic interface. In particular, we propose a switching-based state mapping and control algorithm between a rate-based passive controller, which addresses the workspace incompatibility between the master and slave systems, and a pose-based passive controller, which is required for precise operation. The ... View full abstract»

  • Camera-based navigation of a low-cost quadrocopter

    In this paper, we describe a system that enables a low-cost quadrocopter coupled with a ground-based laptop to navigate autonomously in previously unknown and GPS-denied environments. Our system consists of three components: a monocular SLAM system, an extended Kalman filter for data fusion and state estimation and a PID controller to generate steering commands. Next to a working system, the main ... View full abstract»
