Detection of thrown objects in indoor and outdoor scenes
— We present a novel technique for the detection of hand-thrown objects in a video sequence. Our method runs in real-time and was designed to be used as a component in a deployed...

A modular robotic system using magnetic force effectors
— One of the primary impediments to building ensembles with many modular robots is the complexity and number of mechanical mechanisms used to construct the individual modules. As...

Extrinsic self calibration of a camera and a 3D laser range finder from natural scenes
— In this paper, we describe a new approach for the extrinsic calibration of a camera with a 3D laser range finder, that can be done on the fly. This approach does not require an...
