ECCV 2010 Tutorial: Computer Vision and 3D Perception for Robotics

ECCV 2010 Tutorial:  Computer Vision and 3D Perception for Robotics

When: September 5, 2010

Where: European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV) 2010, Crete, Greece


Course description:

This tutorial is meant as an introduction to the design and implementation of vision algorithms that are useful for robots that act around people.  The tutorial concentrates on four areas: mapping and navigation, object recognition, object tracking, and people detection.  We will discuss vision algorithms that have been successful on personal robots, as well as tools (such as datasets and software architectures) for future algorithm development.  We will address multiple levels of computer vision, from collecting training data, efficiently processing sensor data, and extracting low-level features, to higher-level object and environment modeling.
