We are conducting research on Active Intelligent Systems. Topics include:
- Scene Recognition for Mobile Robots
- Planning of Recognition and Action
- Vision-based human tracking
- Interactive Robot Teaching

Theme1:Vision-based mobile robots

On-line mapping, person detection, and path planning

We have been developing autonomous mobile robots with scene recognition and motion planning capabilities, performing service tasks such as guiding and attending. Research topics are: human detection and tracking, localization and mapping, exploration planning, and on-line path planning. All such functions are implemented as software modules, called RT components running on a modularized software development environment, RT-middleware.

Theme2:Outdoor navigation

Autonomous outdoor mobile robot

We have been developing autonomous robots that can move in various outdoor environments. Outdoor navigation is composed of "global navigation" which determines the route based on localization and "local navigation" which generates a safe path based on the recognition of local scenes. We have developed a view-based localization method for the global navigation and a multisensory road boundary detection method for the local navigation.

Theme3:Human-robot collaborative task

Object recognition and manipulation by a Humanoid with vision

We have been working on teaching and execution of human-robot collaborative tasks. Topics include programming by demonstration (PbD) for collaborative assembly tasks, task representation for coordinating human and robot actions, intuitive instruction of robot movement, and implementation of basic skills for object recognition and manipulation.
