Energy Efficient Robot Rendezvous
We examine the problem of finding a single meeting location for a group of heterogeneous autonomous mobile robots, such that the total system cost of traveling to the rendezvous i...

Fourier tags: Smoothly degradable fiducial markers for use in human-robot interaction
In this paper we introduce the Fourier tag, a synthetic fiducial marker used to visually encode information and provide controllable positioning. The Fourier tag is a synthetic ta...

Can Lucas-Kanade be used to estimate motion parallax in 3D cluttered scenes?
When an observer moves in a 3D static scene, the motion field depends on the depth of the visible objects and on the observer’s instantaneous translation and rotation. By compu...

A non-myopic approach to visual search
We show how a greedy approach to visual search — i.e., directly moving to the most likely location of the target — can be suboptimal, if the target object is hard to detect. I...

Wavelet-based Light Reconstruction from a Single Image
In this paper we propose a wavelet-based light representation. This representation is used for recovering illumination and reflectance of a scene with known geometry from a singl...
