A cheap stereo vision camera

Stereo vision cameras have certainly not gained wide adaptation in robotics research to the extend that time-of-flight sensors such as laser have. Part of the reason is the fact that the slower computers of the past have always made it difficult to deploy real-time machine vision systems for real-time robotics. Another has to do with… Read More »

Autonomous exploration with a vision-based mobile robot

In recent years, the vast majority of mobile robots have been constructed to rely heavily on a laser sensor for perceiving their surrounding environment. Laser is very accurate when it comes to measuring the distance to objects making it possible for mobile robots to navigate and map large and highly dynamic environments. On the other… Read More »
