As one of the most unique types of art in Chinese culture, nowadays Chinese calligraphy is attracting increasing interests from researchers. It will be a big step if we have a robot to write Chinese calligraphy, especially in various styles, and it will form a bridge to combine science with art directly. However, there are so many different types and styles(More)
Known as “the art of strokes”, Chinese calligraphy expresses its aesthetic through the strokes. A calligraphy learner practise the strokes and compose a calligraphic character by the strokes thereafter. Following the same process, the calligraphy robot, Callibot [2] needs to extract the strokes from a character. Therefore, we propose an(More)
As the most critical function of mobile robots, navigation substantially relies on self-localization. Among all the approaches, vision based localization is widely adopted. Unlike the complex algorithms developed before, we present a simple real-time visual localization approach which regards the circular lamps on the ceiling as the landmarks. Two sets of(More)
Although Vehicular Ad-hoc Network (VANET) is a subclass of Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET), some routing protocols designed for MANET, such as AODV, are no longer suitable in VANET due to the high mobility of VANET. For this reason, we propose a GPS based AODV (GBAODV) in this paper. With the support of the GPS device, we constrain the number of AODV routing(More)
Chinese calligraphy is a unique form of art in the world, whose aesthetic is mainly created by the proper manipulation of the brush. However, it is impossible for a person to figure out the 6-D motion of the brush from calligraphy images, if he has no experience of writing calligraphy. In this paper, we propose a Learning from Demonstration approach for our(More)
Combining functions with aesthetics, characters with drawings, Chinese calligraphy is a unique type of traditional art in China. To mimic the special writing skills, we develop a calligraphy robot which consists of one 6-DOF robot arm, one linear rail and one paper conveyor. This calligraphy robot, called Callibot, has several features. Firstly, it has(More)
