Cooperative Bimanual Action
We present an experiment on cooperative bimanual action. Right-handed subjects manipulated a pair of physical objects, a tool and a target object, so that the tool would touch a t...

Tracking an Extended Object Modeled as an Axis-Aligned Rectangle
: In many tracking applications, the extent of the target object is neglected and it is assumed that the received measurements stem from a point source. However, modern sensors are...

Activity-Object Bayesian Networks for Detecting Occluded Objects in Uncertain Indoor Environment
Abstract. In the field of the service robots, object detection and scene understanding are very important. Conventional methods for object detection are performed with the geometri...

3D object modelling for entertainment applications
Recent advances in three-dimensional (3D) data acquisition techniques have offered an alternative to the traditional 2D metamorphosis (or morphing) approaches, which gradually cha...

Evolutionary Algorithm for 3D Object Reconstruction from Images
This work presents an evolutionary algorithm to reconstruct 3D objects based on images of them. In the proposed evolutionary algorithm, we describe a way to evolve 3D initial mode...

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...

Shape from self-calibration and Fast Marching Method
Shape-from-shading methods recover 3-D shape from intensity images. Often, Lambertian reflectance is assumed. The Lambertian assumption is attractive because it simplifies the a...
