— A feature detection system has been developed for real-time identification of lines, circles and people legs from laser range data. A new method suitable for arc/circle detection is proposed: the Inscribed Angle Variance (IAV). Lines are detected using a recursive line fitting method. The people leg detection is based on geometrical relations. The system(More)
The effective use of brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) in real-world environments depends on a satisfactory throughput. In a P300-based BCI, this can be attained by reducing the number of trials needed to detect the P300 signal. However, this task is hampered by the very low signal-to-noise-ratio (SNR) of P300 event related potentials. This paper proposes an(More)
—This work proposes a novel classifier-fusion scheme using learning algorithms, i.e. syntactic models, instead of the usual Bayesian or heuristic rules. Moreover, this paper complements the previous comparative studies on DaimlerChrysler Automotive Dataset, offering a set of complementary experiments using feature extractor and classifier combinations.

The image of a planar mirror reflection (IPMR) can be interpreted as a virtual view of the scene, acquired by a camera with a pose symmetric to the pose of the real camera with respect to the mirror plane. The epipolar geometry of virtual views associated with different IPMRs is well understood, and it is possible to recover the camera motion and perform 3D(More)
— This paper presents a sensorial-cooperative architecture to detect, track and classify entities in semi-structured outdoor scenarios for intelligent vehicles. In order to accomplish this task, information provided by in-vehicle Lidar and monocular vision is used. The detection and tracking phases are performed in the laser space, and the object(More)
OBJECTIVE Non-invasive brain-computer interface (BCI) based on electroencephalography (EEG) offers a new communication channel for people suffering from severe motor disorders. This paper presents a novel P300-based speller called lateral single-character (LSC). The LSC performance is compared to that of the standard row-column (RC) speller. METHODS We(More)
This paper presents a new algorithm for the extrinsic calibration of a perspective camera and an invisible 2D laser-rangefinder (LRF). The calibration is achieved by freely moving a checkerboard pattern in order to obtain plane poses in camera coordinates and depth readings in the LRF reference frame. The problem of estimating the rigid displacement between(More)
