– 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)
In this paper, we present a multi-sensor cooperation paradigm between an omnidirectional vision system and a panoramic range finder system, using to localize dynamically a mobile robot. These two sensors provide some complementary data which enable us to build a robust sensorial model which integrates an important number of significant primitives. Based on(More)
In this article, a dynamic localization method based on multi target tracking is presented. The originality of this method is its capability to manage and propagate uncertainties during the localization process. This multi-level uncertainty propagation stage is based on the use of the Dempster-Shafer theory. The perception system we use is composed of an(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 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)
