  1. 1. 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.

  2. 2. 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

  3. 3. 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.

  4. 4. Design of an Autonomous Weeding Vehicle

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Produktutveckling

    Author : Simon Axbom; Lisa Ralsgård; [2019]
    Keywords : Mechanical Engineering; Product Development; Agricultural Robotics; Weeding; Lightweight Vehicle; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the development of an autonomous weeding vehicle for the agricultural industry. It has been done as a project at RMIT University in Melbourne and the aim was to develop a design for the vehicle which could later be used to develop a commercial product. READ MORE

  5. 5. A Comparison of Path Planning Algorithms for Robotic Vacuum Cleaners

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS); KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Jacob Sörme; Tobias Edwards; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Household robotics is on the rise with robotic vacuum cleaners taking the lead. One of the challenges in creating great robotic vacuum cleaners is path planning for coverage of the room. For instance, the robot might not know how the environment looks, or where in the room the robot is. READ MORE
