— Studies of primate locomotion have shown that the head and eyes are stabilized in space through the vestibulo-collic and vestibulo ocular Reflexes (VCR, VOR). The VOR is a reflex eye movement control system that stabilizes the image on the retina of the eye during head movements in space. This stabilization helps maintain objects of interest approximately(More)
between the wall-climbing robot and the ground robot, which serves as a good initial estimate for the ICP algorithm to further refine the transformation matrix. We propose a novel particle filter algorithm to identify the real pose of the wall-climbing robot out of up to four possible solutions to P3P problem using Grunert's algorithm. The initial estimate(More)
— An RGB-D camera is a sensor which outputs the distances to objects in a scene in addition to their RGB color. Recent technological advances in this area have introduced affordable devices in the robotics community. In this paper, we present a real-time feature extraction and pose estimation technique using the data from a single RGB-D camera. First, a set(More)
quadrupedal robot locomotion, there is pitch, yaw, and roll of the head and body due to the stepping. The head motion adversely affects visual sensors embedded in the robots head. Mammals stabilize the head using a vestibulo­ collic reflex that detects linear and rotational acceleration. In this paper we describe the use of a machine learning algorithm that(More)
