A method for capturing high intensity dynamic range scenes with a low dynamic range camera consists in taking a series of images with dierent exposure settings and combining these into a single high dynamic range image. The combined image values are found by weighted averaging of values from the dierently exposed images on a per-pixel basis. This paper(More)
— This paper introduces a new method to determine a person's pose based on laser range measurements. Such estimates are typically a prerequisite for any human-aware robot navigation, which is the basis for effective and time-extended interaction between a mobile robot and a human. The robot uses observed information from a laser range finder to detect(More)
— This paper presents a trajectory planning algorithm for a robot operating in dynamic human environments. Environments such as pedestrian streets, hospital corridors, train stations or airports. We formulate the problem as planning a minimal cost trajectory through a potential field, defined from the perceived position and motion of persons in the(More)
Colour is an important and useful feature for object tracking and recognition in computer vision. However, it has the difficulty that the colour of the object changes if the illumi-nant colour changes. But under known illuminant colour it becomes a robust feature. There are more and more computer vision applications tracking humans, for example in(More)
— Respecting people's social spaces is an important prerequisite for acceptable and natural robot navigation in human environments. In this paper, we describe an adaptive system for mobile robot navigation. The system is based on run-time motion pattern analysis of interacting human beings. In the proposed method, the robot estimates if the person seeks to(More)
This paper introduces a new method for adaptive control of a robot approaching a person controlled by the person's interest in interaction. For adjustment of the robot behavior a cost function centered in the person is adapted according to an introduced person evaluator method relying on the three variables: the distance between the person and the robot,(More)
This paper describes a study of the effect of a human interactive robot placed in an urban transit space. The underlying hypothesis is that it is possible to create interesting new living spaces and induce value in terms of experiences, information or economics, by putting socially interactive mobile agents into public urban transit area. To investigate the(More)
