  1. 1. Implementation of an 8-bit Dynamic Fixed-Point Convolutional Neural Network for Human Sign Language Recognition on a Xilinx FPGA Board

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik

    Author : Ricardo Núñez-Prieto; [2019]
    Keywords : Artificial Intelligence; Computer Vision; Machine Learning; Convolutional Neural Networks; FPGA; Sign Language Recognition; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The goal of this thesis work is to implement a convolutional neural network on an FPGA device with the capability of recognising human sign language. The set of gestures that the neural network can identify has been taken from the Swedish sign language, and it consists of the signs used for representing the letters of the Swedish alphabet (a.k.a.

  2. 2. Combining Acoustic Echo Cancellation and Voice Activity Detection in Social Robotics

    University essay from KTH/Matematik (Avd.)

    Author : Anton Fahlgren; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This thesis is partly a theoretical introduction to some basic concepts of signal processing such as the Fourier transform, linear time invariant systems and spectral analysis of random signals, both in the continuous and discrete setting. A second part is devoted to theory and applications of echo cancellation and voice activity detection in so called social robotics. READ MORE

  3. 3. Accurate Tracking by Overlap Maximization

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Datorseende

    Author : Goutam Bhat; [2019]
    Keywords : Tracking; Accurate Tracking; IoU Prediction; Computer Vision;

    Abstract : Visual object tracking is one of the fundamental problems in computer vision, with a wide number of practical applications in e.g.\ robotics, surveillance etc. Given a video sequence and the target bounding box in the first frame, a tracker is required to find the target in all subsequent frames.

  4. 4. TWIST : Twelve Bar Intelligently Simulated Tensegrity

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Rymdteknik

    Author : Hannah Petersson; [2019]
    Keywords : tensegrity; robotics; simulations; monte carlo method; central pattern generators; lander; space;

    Abstract : One of the biggest challenges of putting a robot on an extraterrestrial surface is the entry, descent and landing. By making the robot impact resistant, the need for landing thrusters and parachutes is reduced, lowering the weight and cost of an interplanetary robotic mission. READ MORE

  5. 5. Latent Task Embeddings forFew-Shot Function Approximation

    University essay from KTH/Optimeringslära och systemteori

    Author : Filip Strand; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Approximating a function from a few data points is of great importance in fields where data is scarce, like, for example, in robotics applications. Recently, scalable and expressive parametric models like deep neural networks have demonstrated superior performance on a wide variety of function approximation tasks when plenty of data is available –however, these methods tend to perform considerably worse in low-data regimes which calls for alternative approaches.
