Many studies have tried to answer an important question: is it possible to predict human visually selected regions-of-interest (hROIs)? hROIs are defined as the loci of eye fixations and they can be analyzed by their spatial distribution over the visual stimulus and their temporal ordering. We used a simplified set of geometrical spatial kernels and linear(More)
This paper presents a method for measuring 3D environment by a tracked vehicle robot using a laser range finder (LRF) with an arm-type movable unit. The unit is mounted on the robot and the LRF is installed at the end of the unit. This sensing system enables the sensor to change position and to face at a right angle to a variety of configuration. Because of(More)
This study analyzes a system for measuring six force components acting between a tire and the road surface, by determining strains in the wheel-tire module. The measurement method was developed on the basis of the least squares method, and dynamic tests were carried out to demonstrate the effectiveness of the method. It is expected that real-time(More)
Bottom-up cortical representations of visual conspicuity interact with top-down internal cognitive models of the external world to control eye movements , EMs, and the closely linked attention-shift mechanisms; to thus achieve visual recognition. Conspicuity operators implemented with image processing algorithms , IPAs, can discriminate human(More)
It is very important to construct eectively Multiple Robots System under the proper software development system. We believe that there is the proper software model according to the feature of system such as the number of robots, the kind of work or the type of cooperation. In this paper, we present the design of an advanced software development system which(More)
We have developed a tracked mobile robot with two robotic arms which can work by itself in a disaster area. It can perform handling tasks such as gripping and carrying of a target object by the two arms as manipulators. To reduce burden of remote control on an operator for such tasks, this paper presents a method for detecting gripping positions of a(More)
