This work presents a general framework for people indoor activity recognition. Firstly, a Wireless Fidelity (WiFi) localization system implemented as a Fuzzy Rule-based Classifier (FRBC) is used to obtain an approximate position at the level of discrete zones (office, corridor, meeting room, etc). Secondly, a Fuzzy Finite State Machine (FFSM) is used for(More)
The framework of this paper is robot localization inside buildings by means of wireless localization systems. Such kind of systems make use of the Wireless Fidelity (WiFi) signal strength sensors which are becoming more and more useful in the localization stage of several robotic platforms. Robot localization is usually made up of two phases: training and(More)
This paper presents different techniques to achieve the tasks proposed in the DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) VRC (Virtual Robotics Challenge), which entails the recognition of objects , the robot localization and the mapping of the simulated environments in the Challenge. Data acquisition relies on several sensors such as a stereo camera,(More)
—This paper presents the results of a set of extensive experiments carried out under both daytime and nighttime real traffic conditions. The data were captured using an enhanced or extended Floating Car Data system (xFCD) that includes a stereo vision sensor for detecting the local traffic ahead. The collected information is then used to propose a novel(More)
In this paper we present a technique to build 3D maps of the environment using a 2D laser scanner combined with a robot's action model. This paper demonstrates that it is possible to build 3D maps in a cheap way using an angled 2D laser. We introduce a scan matching method to minimize the odometer errors of the robotics platform. Some experimental results(More)
Mapping techniques based on Wireless Range-Only Sensors (WROS) consist of locating the beacons using distance measurements only. In this work we use WROS working at 2.4GHz band (same as WiFi), which has the disadvantage of being affected by a high noise. The goal of this paper is to study a noisy range-only sensor and its application in the development of(More)
— Localization and mapping in indoor environments, such as airports and hospitals, are key tasks for almost every robotic platform. Some researchers suggest the use of RO (Range Only) sensors based on WiFi (Wireless Fidelity) technology with SLAM (Simultaneous Localization And Mapping) techniques. The current state of the art in RO SLAM is mainly focused on(More)
