In this article we analyze the response of Time of Flight cameras (active sensors) for close range imaging under three different illumination conditions and compare the results with stereo vision (passive) sensors. Time of Flight sensors are sensitive to ambient light and have low resolution but deliver high frame rate accurate depth data under suitable(More)
In this article, we analyze the effects of ambient light on Time of Flight (ToF) depth imaging for a plant’s leaf in sunlight, shadow and room conditions. ToF imaging is sensitive to ambient light and we try to find the best possible integration times (IT) for each condition. This is important in order to optimize camera calibration. Our analysis is based(More)
The ASETA project (acronym for Adaptive Surveying and Early treatment of crops with a Team of Autonomous vehicles) is a multi-disciplinary project combining cooperating airborne and ground-based vehicles with advanced sensors and automated analysis to implement a smart treatment of weeds in agricultural fields. The purpose is to control and reduce the(More)
Our project aims at supporting the creation of sustainable and meaningful longer-term human-robot relationships through the creation of embodied robots with face recognition and natural language dialogue capabilities, which exploit and publish social information available on the web (Facebook). Our main underlying experimental hypothesis is that such(More)
In Dam inspection tasks, an underwater robot has to grab images while surveying the wall meanwhile maintaining a certain distance and relative orientation. This paper proposes the use of an MSIS (Mechanically Scanned Imaging Sonar) for relative positioning of a robot with respect to the wall. An imaging sonar gathers polar image scans from which depth(More)
This paper explores the intersection of three areas: interactive robots, face recognition, and online social networks, by presenting and discussing an implemented real-world system that combines all three, a “FaceBots” robot. Our robot is a mobile robot with face recognition, natural language dialogue, as well as mapping capabilities. The(More)
Matching human leucocyte antigens between donors and recipients of solid organ transplantation is essential for short and long term graft survival. Some physicians believe that human leucocyte antigens matching is not essential in renal transplantation. The beneficial effects of human leucocyte antigens-B antigen matching are seen if graft is functioning at(More)
Elevated pH and elevated plasma bicarbonate level above normal characterise metabolic alkalosis. When bicarbonate is elevated pCO2 must also be elevated to maintain pH to its normal range. Therefore with metabolic alkalosis, the compensation is to decrease alveolar ventilation, and increase pCO2. The causes of metabolic alkalosis are gastro-intestinal(More)
