In the autonomous piloting of vehicles, the characterization of nearby dynamic object motion by perception and tracking techniques aids in the optimization of avoidance strategies. Knowledge of the features of object motion in goal-driven navigation allows for accurate deviation strategies to be implemented with appropriate anticipation. This perceptual(More)
Present work addresses the guidelines that have been followed to construct basic behavioral agents for visually guided navigation within the framework of a hierarchical architecture. Visual and motor interactions are described within this generic framework that allows for an incremental development of behavior from an initial basis set. Basic locomotion(More)
The Internet makes it possible to share and manipulate a vast quantity of information efficiently and effectively, but the rapid and chaotic growth experienced by the Net has generated a poorly organized environment that hinders the sharing and mining of useful data. The need for meaningful web-page classification techniques is therefore becoming an urgent(More)
Current work deals with the design and development of a virtual environment to test perception based navigation strategies for a non-holonomic real robot. Physical sensors onboard the robot are described with their main characteristics as virtual perceptual agents. Real environments are represented as polygons to closely mimic geometric shape properties of(More)
— The configuration of a surface inspection vision system as a complex task, requires mining associations among attributes due to the variability of the surface and the environment in real-time production process. The surface inspection task has to change to deal with different elements such as, wood, stainless steel or paper inspection and, in the case of(More)
