In this paper we propose a general, object-oriented software architecture for model-based visual tracking. The library is general purpose with respect to object model, estimated pose parameters, visual modalities employed, number of cameras and objects, and tracking methodology. The base class structure provides the necessary building blocks for(More)
Even though the programming languages C and C++ have been standardized by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the International Standards Organization (ISO) and - in addition to that - the availability of the C library and the standard template library (STL) enormously simplified development of platform independent applications for the most(More)
In this paper, an integrated multi-camera person tracking system for virtual reality television studios (VR-TV) is presented. The system robustly tracks the moderator while freely moving, sitting or walking around the studio, and the estimation result can be used in order to drive the main broadcasting camera mounted on a large robotic arm. Application of(More)
Both Robots and Personal Computers established new markets about 30 years ago and were enabling factors in Automation and Information Technology. However, while you can see Personal Computers in almost every home nowadays, the domain of Robots in general still is mostly restricted to industrial automation. Due to the physical impact of robots, a safe design(More)
At the moment, the collaboration of human and robot is mainly based on a master-slave level with a human teleoperating the robot or programming it off-line allowing the robot to execute only static tasks. In industrial production the limitations make a collaboration at the moment nearly impossible, because of the needed safety for the human worker.(More)

Within the ITrackU project, a modular software architecture for model-based visual tracking and image understanding is being developed. The library is general-purpose with respect to object models, state-space parameters, visual modalities employed, number of cameras and targets, and tracking methodology. This provides the necessary building blocks for a(More)

While still not common in day-to-day business, mobile robot platforms form a growing market in robotics. Mobile platforms equipped with a manipulator for increased flexibility have been used successfully in biotech laboratories for sample management as shown on the well-known ESACT meetings. Navigation and object recognition is carried out by the(More)
