Project description

Cognitive Systems and Robotics Giving robots faster, more human-like vision through foveation

TACO develops a 3D sensing system with 3D foveation properties endowing service robots with a higher level of motion and affordance perception and interaction capabilities with respect to everyday objects and environments in a more natural and human-like manner. The system will be able to acquire 3D images with coarse level of details, applying fast object recognition techniques to identify areas of interest and then concentrate the image acquisition on details of interest allowing for higher resolution 3D sampling of these details.

The project will verify and test the 3D sensing system in a robotic environment, exploring the capabilities of the system to allow the robot to navigate autonomously and interact with a diverse number of everyday objects.
