In this article a novel type of sensor system called the Active Floor is presented that allows the time varying spatial weight distribution of the active office environment to be captured. The properties of the Active Floor are described showing that it differs substantially from other commonly encountered sensor systems. Furthermore classification of the(More)
This paper describes an approach for calibrating active stereo heads for which no prior knowledge of the world coordinate system is required. During an automated procedure derived from this approach, the mobile robot can be loosely positioned in front of a calibration pattern. Through our procedure, both the camera calibration and the neck-eye calibration(More)
Robotic systems and their software design are based on the same principles found in other computer applications. However, while many computer systems to date are deeply rooted in concepts such as multi-processing, multi-threads, modularity, etc., robotic systems are still limited by mono-processing, centralized designs. This paper addresses these(More)
