This introduction aims to provide readers an intuitive understanding of Gaussian processes regression. Gaussian processes regression (GPR) models have been widely used in machine learning applications because their representation flexibility and inherently uncertainty measures over predictions. The paper starts with explaining mathematical basics t...

In this paper, a solution for vehicle speed estimation using unmanned aerial videos is described. First, convolutional neural networks and Kalman filtering using deep features are used for detecting and tracking vehicles. Then, a photogrammetric approach is developed for estimating the three-dimensional (3D) position of the tracked vehicles on the...

Monocular simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) attracted much attention in the mobile-robotics domain over the past decades along with the advancements of small-format, consumer-grade digital cameras. This is especially the case for micro air vehicles (MAV) due to their payload and power limitations. The quality of global 3D reconstruction...

Along with the advancement of light-weight sensing and processing technologies, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have recently become popular platforms for intelligent traffic monitoring and control. UAV-mounted cameras can capture traffic-flow videos from various perspectives providing a comprehensive insight into road conditions. To analyze the tr...

Multi-modal locomotion (e.g. terrestrial, aerial, and aquatic) is gaining increasing interest in robotics research as it improves the robots environmental adaptability, locomotion versatility, and operational flexibility. Within the terrestrial multiple locomotion robots, the advantage of hybrid robots stems from their multiple (two or more) locomo...

CLAWAR 2016: 19th International Conference on Climbing and Walking Robots and the Support Technologies for Mobile Machines London, UK, 12 –14 September 2016 Edited by: Mohammad O Tokhi ( University of Sheffield, UK), Gurvinder S Virk ( University of Gävle, Sweden) This paper proposes a criterion based method to make possible the autonomous locomot...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper proposes an energy consumption criterion to realize the locomotion mode transition of hybrid ground robots, which particularly focuses on gait and energy analysis of a leg-tracked quadruped robot. The proposed criterion uses both the internal states of the robot and the external environmental information to determine the most energy effi...
