Closing the loop in appearance-guided omnidirectional visual odometry by using vocabulary trees
In this paper, we present a method that allows us to recover the trajectory of a vehicle purely from monocular omnidirectional images very accurately. The method uses a combination...

Repeated auctions for robust task execution by a robot team
We present empirical results of an auction-based algorithm for dynamic allocation of tasks to robots. The results have been obtained both in simulation and using real robots. A di...

Combining active learning and reactive control for robot grasping
Grasping an object is a task that inherently needs to be treated in a hybrid fashion. The system must decide both where and how to grasp the object. While selecting where to grasp...
