To enhance the quality of human-robot interaction, the ability of a robot to make human-like expressions is regarded as being a key issue. Although there are several expression channels, we have focused on expression that is based on gestures.

This study presents how to learn feature representation and similarity metric function directly from RGB-D image data for comparing RGB-D image patches. Comparing image pairs is one of fundamental task for many vision problems in robotics application such as object tracking, classification and registration. Among them, we especially focus on object(More)
