Localizing global descriptors for content-based image retrieval
TLDR
In this paper, we explore, extend and simplify the localization of the description ability of the well-established MPEG-7 (Scalable Colour Descriptor (SCD), Colour Layout Desriptor (CLD) and Edge Histogram Descriptors (EHD) global descriptors, which we call the SIMPLE family of descriptors. Expand
DARP: Divide Areas Algorithm for Optimal Multi-Robot Coverage Path Planning
TLDR
This paper deals with the path planning problem of a team of mobile robots, in order to cover an area of interest, with prior-defined obstacles. Expand
Searching images with MPEG-7 (& MPEG-7-like) Powered Localized dEscriptors: The SIMPLE answer to effective Content Based Image Retrieval
TLDR
We use the SURF detector to define salient image patches of blob-like textures and use the MPEG-7 Scalable Color (SC), Color Layout (CL) and Edge Histogram (EH) descriptors to produce the final local features' vectors. Expand
Real-time adaptive multi-robot exploration with application to underwater map construction
TLDR
This paper deals with the problem of autonomous exploration of unknown areas using teams of Autonomous X Vehicles (AXVs) where the AXVs have to autonomously navigate themselves so as to construct an accurate map of the unknown area. Expand
The NOPTILUS project: Autonomous Multi-AUV Navigation for Exploration of Unknown Environments
TLDR
We present a new approach that is able to efficiently and fully-autonomously navigate a team of AUVs when deployed in exploration of unknown static and dynamic environments towards providing accurate static/dynamic maps of the environment. Expand
Autonomous navigation of teams of Unmanned Aerial or Underwater Vehicles for exploration of unknown static & dynamic environments
TLDR
We present a new approach that is able to efficiently and fully-autonomously navigate a team of Unmanned Aerial or Underwater Vehicles (UAUV's) when deployed in exploration of unknown static and dynamic environments towards providing accurate static/dynamic maps of the environment. Expand
A distributed, plug-n-play algorithm for multi-robot applications with a priori non-computable objective functions
TLDR
A distributed methodology for dealing with multi-robot problems, where the mission objectives can be translated into an optimization of a cost function, has been proposed. Expand
Continuously informed heuristic A∗-optimal path retrieval inside an unknown environment
TLDR
This paper deals with the problem of retrieving the optimal path between two points inside an unknown environment, utilizing a robot-scouter. Expand
