This paper presents a method to process axial monocular image sequences for mobile robot obstacle detection. We do not aim to achieve a complete scene reconstruction, but only to evaluate the time to collision and surface orientation useful for robot obstacle avoidance. Using a planar facet representation we first calculate formally the velocity field(More)
This paper tackles the image characterization problem from a statistical analysis of local patterns in one or several images. The induced image characteristics are not defined a priori, but depends on the content of the images to process. These characteristics are also simple image descriptors and thus considering an histogram of these elementary(More)
This paper presents a global method to process monocular image sequences for mobile robot obstacle detection. We do not aim to achieve a complete scene reconstruction, but only to evaluate the time to collision and surface orientation useful for robot obstacle avoidance. Using a planar facet representation we first calculate formally the velocity field(More)
This paper presents CYCLOP, a multi-FPGA board architecture designed to allow real-time implementation of low-level image processing algorithms. A set of such identical boards is to be integrated into a workstation. It offers the users different algorithm implementation possibilities, depending on the trade-off speed area desired: - for applications(More)
