Small obstacles of the order of 0.5-3cms and homogeneous scenes often pose a problem for indoor mobile robots. These obstacles cannot be clearly distinguished even with the state of the art depth sensors or laser range finders using existing vision based algorithms. With the advent of sophisticated image processing algorithms like SLIC [1] and LSD [9], it(More)
This paper proposes a robust approach for image based floor detection and segmentation from sequence of images or video. In contrast to many previous approaches, which uses a priori knowledge of the surroundings, our method uses combination of modified sparse optical flow and planar homography for ground plane detection which is then combined with graph(More)
Frontier detection is a critical component in indoor mobile robot exploration, wherein the robot decides the next best location to move in order to continue with its mapping process. All frontier detection algorithms to the best of our knowledge require 3D locations of occupied regions as its input. In a monocular setting this entails a backend VSLAM(More)
This paper proposes a new approach for monocular dense 3D reconstruction of a complex dynamic scene from two perspective frames. By applying superpixel oversegmentation to the image, we model a generically dynamic (hence non-rigid) scene with a piecewise planar and rigid approximation. In this way, we reduce the dynamic reconstruction problem to a “3D(More)
Non-rigid structure-from-motion (NRSfM) has so far been mostly studied for recovering 3D structure of a single non-rigid/deforming object. To handle the real world challenging multiple deforming objects scenarios, existing methods either pre-segment different objects in the scene or treat multiple non-rigid objects as a whole to obtain the 3D non-rigid(More)
