— Interaction with its environment is a key requisite for a humanoid robot. Especially the ability to recognize and manipulate unknown objects is crucial to successfully work in natural environments. Visual object recognition, however, still remains a challenging problem, as three-dimensional objects often give rise to ambiguous, two-dimensional views.(More)
Categorization of objects solely based on shape and appearance is still a largely unresolved issue. With the advent of new sensor technologies, such as consumer-level range sensors, new possibilities for shape processing have become available for a range of new application domains. In the first part of this paper, we introduce a novel, large dataset(More)
Video-based gaze-tracking systems are typically restricted in terms of their effective tracking space. This constraint limits the use of eyetrackers in studying mobile human behavior. Here, we compare two possible approaches for estimating the gaze of participants who are free to walk in a large space whilst looking at different regions of a large display.(More)
With increasingly large image databases, searching in them becomes an ever more difficult endeavor. Consequently, there is a need for advanced tools for image retrieval in a webscale context. Searching by tags becomes intractable in such scenarios as large numbers of images will correspond to queries such as " car and house and street ". We present a novel(More)
