A Background Model Initialization Algorithm for Video Surveillance
TLDR
A new algorithm is presented for the purpose of background model initialization, which takes as input a video sequence in which moving objects are present, and outputs a statistical background model describing the static parts of the scene. Expand
A formal model of computation for sensory-based robotics
TLDR
A special model of computation is constructed, called RS (robot schemas), with properties designed to facilitate sensory-based robot programming, and offers the potential to construct robot task representations which are easy to use and concise, and which execute in an efficient manner. Expand
A background model initialization algorithm for video surveillance
TLDR
A new algorithm is presented for the purpose of background model initialization, which takes as input a video sequence in which moving objects are present, and outputs a statistical background model describing the static parts of the scene. Expand
ADAPT: A Cognitive Architecture for Robotics
TLDR
This paper describes the components of ADAPT and how it differs from a number of existing cognitive architectures. Expand

  • 25 March 1985
TLDR
A distributed environment for robot control currently under development is overviews and a simple flexible set of grasps for a dextrous hand is suggested and their implementation discussed. Expand
Representing and analyzing action plans as networks of concurrent processes

  • 1 June 1993
TLDR
A concurrent-process based representation is developed which represents both the plan and the uncertain and dynamic environment in which the plan operates and a methodology for analyzing the behavior of this interacting system of plan and world. Expand
Planning as incremental adaptation of a reactive system
TLDR
This paper presents and formally examines an architecture that incorporates the benefits of a deliberative component without compromising the reactive component, and provides the first set of performance statistics in the literature for this class of system. Expand
A cognitive approach to classifying perceived behaviors
TLDR
This work is implementing the Robot Schemas (RS) language in Soar, a CSP-type programming language for robotics that controls a hierarchy of concurrently executing schemas, and using it to classify perceived behaviors. Expand
Assembly and task planning: a taxonomy
TLDR
This taxonomy of the assembly and task planning field should be viewed as a dynamic description of the field that will change shape as the field progresses, and is useful for administrative purposes such as aiding program committee members and editors in selecting reviewers and as an aid in selecting keywords to be associated with various articles. Expand
Combining multiple scoring systems for target tracking using rank-score characteristics
TLDR
It is demonstrated that using the rank-score characteristic as a diversity measure is an effective method to dynamically select scoring systems and fusion operations that improve the performance of multitarget video tracking with occlusions. Expand
