  1. 1. Safe Navigation of a Tele-operated Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för datavetenskap och kommunikation (CSC)

    Author : Daniel Duberg; [2018]
    Keywords : unmanned aerial vehicle; safe navigation; tele-operated; robotics; drones; UAV; indoor; collision avoidance; human-UAV interface; interface; human-robot interface; computer science;

    Abstract : Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) can navigate in indoor environments and through environments that are hazardous or hard to reach for humans. This makes them suitable for use in search and rescue missions and by emergency response and law enforcement to increase situational awareness. READ MORE

  2. 2. Segmentation and Depth Estimation of Urban Road Using Monocular Camera and Convolutional Neural Networks

    University essay from KTH/Robotik, perception och lärande, RPL

    Author : Addi Djikic; [2018]
    Keywords : AI; ANN; CNN; semantic; segmentation; autonomous; Scania; driving; road; pixel; classification; regression; real time; monocular; depth; estimation; convolutional; neural; networks; deep; learning; perception; camera; vehicles; supervised; tensorflow; Cityscapes; machine learning; autoencoder; decoder; encoder;

    Abstract : Deep learning for safe autonomous transport is rapidly emerging. Fast and robust perception for autonomous vehicles will be crucial for future navigation in urban areas with high traffic and human interplay. Previous work focuses on extracting full image depth maps, or finding specific road features such as lanes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Autonomous Identification of Human Activity Regions

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för datavetenskap och kommunikation (CSC)

    Author : Lin Qi; [2017]
    Keywords : Human Activity Region; Robot; Human Tracking;

    Abstract : Human activity regions (HARs) are human-centric semantic partitions where observing and/or interacting with humans is likely in indoor environments. HARs are useful for achieving successful human-robot interaction, such as in safe navigation around a building or to know where to be able to assist humans in their activities. READ MORE

  4. 4. Rapid close surrounding evaluation for autonomous commercial vehicles

    University essay from Chalmers tekniska högskola/Institutionen för tillämpad mekanik

    Author : Shamit Bagchi; Evangelia Soultani; [2016]
    Keywords : autonomous vehicles; vehicle navigation; local relative path planning; robot operating system; machine learning;

    Abstract : A framework has been developed for local, relative navigation of an autonomous commercial vehicle in confinedareas. This enables a vehicle to navigate based only on its immediate surroundings, with the vehicle as thereference. The framework uses a simulator, to simulate the environment of a mine, and a vehicle model. READ MORE

  5. 5. How a ship´s bridge knows its position - ECDIS assisted accidents from a contemporary human factors perspective

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Riskhantering och Samhällssäkerhet

    Author : Mads Ragnvald Nielsen; [2016]
    Keywords : engineering; cognitive systems; Human and technology interaction; accident prevention; systems safety; interaction design; safety by design FLMU06; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The technological artifacts used in ship navigation have undergone substantial changes during the last decades, and real-time digital navigation is a reality with the introduction of the ECDIS. Despite the obvious merits of this new navigation mode, and the imagined improvement in safety that it theoretically should bring, ECDIS has in recent years been associated with several accidents.
