– This general paper aims at presenting the Smart Home concept. In this paper, we will detail a) The Smart Home concept b) The various networks infrastructures specific to the habitat c) Our concepts to model the habitat and to provide the most adapted services to the inhabitants. Contrary to the other projects, we direct our work towards a sensors approach(More)
In this paper, we present experimental results got with the omnidirectional sensor SYCLOP " Conical SYstem for LOcalization and Perception " for localisation of mobile robots. This system, which is able to get a panoramic view of a 2π radian field, is made of a CCD camera and a vertically oriented conic shaped reflector. We give at first a method to(More)
This paper deals with a context awareness system based on a service-oriented architecture dedicated to the Smart Home. In our approach, a Smart Home must be able to provide services adapted to the needs of its inhabitants. To achieve this, we propose to build a Smart environment that takes into account the ambient context of its inhabitants, providing(More)
SUMMARY In this paper, we deal with the perceptual organization which is a crucial problem in computer vision. Perceptual organization consists in structuring the image into perceptually significant groups. These structures will be used in higher level processes such as image understanding or object recognition. The grouping is based on application of the(More)
This paper presents a system of absolute localization based on the stereoscopic omnidirectional vision. To do it we use an original perception system which allows our omnidirectional vision sensor SYCLOP to move along a rail. The first part of our study will deal with the problem of building the sensorial model with the help of the two stereoscopic(More)
This paper deals with an absolute mobile robot self-localization algorithm in an indoor environment. Until now, localization methods based on conical omnidirectional vision sensors uniquely used radial segments from vertical environment landmarks projection. The main motivation of this work is to demonstrate that the SYCLOP sensor can be used as a vision(More)
