1 Ricercatore: Ilya Afanasyev Soggetto ospitante: UNIVERSITA' DEGLI STUDI DI TRENTO Bando: Incoming post doc 2009 Soggetto partner (solo per outgoing): Ai sensi della Decreto Leg. n. 196 del 30/06/2003 Codice in materia del trattamento dei dati personali - autorizzo la pubblicazione sul Sito internet della PAT dell abstract e delle immagini (foto o filmati) relativi al mio progetto. Area di ricerca: Acronimo Titolo Data inizio Mechathronics / Meccatronica Laser-Camera systems Laser-Camera systems and algorithms to sense the environment for robotic applications 12 maggio, Durata 36 Finanziamento: , Abstract 3 anno di progetto Pagina 1 di 7

2 The final goal of the project is to build and mount a system of a laser rangefinder (LRF) and a camera (oriented and calibrated together with LRF) on a robotic vehicle, using them together with other 3D sensors and concentrating on Robotic and Human-Machine Interface (HMI) applications by creating algorithms to sense the environment. The general purposes of the project are: 1. Building a sensor system, including the Laser-Camera (LCS), for robotic applications. 2. Mounting LCS on the robotic vehicle (initially on a prototype of a robotic vehicle, then - on the robot Pioneer P3-DX). 3. Development of objects recognition and localization algorithms, based on processing 3D point cloud obtained from sensor system (LCS, Kinect, camera, etc.). 4. Verification of the algorithms with hardware facilities, including tests with different 3D sensors and the robot Pioneer P3-DX. The sensor system includes the laser rangefinder (LRF), RGB camera and also an additional sensor (Microsoft Kinect for data validation). This sensor system captures a target object as 3D point cloud, which is structured and processed by object localization and recognition algorithms together with simultaneous processing of images from 2D camera. For sensor fusion the sensor system was mutually calibrated, using the standard camera calibration technique (Bouguet method). Microsoft Kinect sensor was applied to (a) validate LCS measurements, and (b) control accuracy and precision of object location. The joint 3D and 2D data are processed by the state-ofthe-art object recognition and localization algorithms, which can be used for path planning / mapping the indoor robots (based on sensor integration of RGB camera and a 2D laser rangefinder) and also for different scientific and industrial applications. For these purposes: - The Sensor System has been investigated by indoor environmental conditions of the Mechatronics lab., UniTN, both independently and together with the robot Pioneer P3-DX (after on-board installation). - The object recognition and localization algorithms have been created. - The sensor data has been validated and the measurement accuracy and precision have been controlled with Microsoft Kinect. The main accomplishments obtained by the project are: - Building the Laser-Camera system for robotic applications (Fig.1). - Mounting laser-camera system on the robot Pioneer P3-DX (see Fig. 2). - Development and experimental verification of 3D objects recognition and localization algorithms (with different sensors and hardware facilities, Fig.3,4). - Improvements of the object localization technique, achieving the measurement accuracy and precision comparable with Microsoft Kinect (Fig.5,6). - The implementation of the algorithms with hrdwre facilities to enhance the motion control with object and environment mapping (Fig.7,8). - Publishing papers and reporting the main results on scientific conferences.

5 Figure 5: Experiment setup layout, data were acquired both from a camera and Kinect. Chessboard is used to estimate camera and Kinect positions to provide the reference frame for the localization. Figure 6: The comparison between the ellipses of uncertainty (green - for Kinect, blue - for new system) for the box (left) and the cylinder (central) localizations according to the reference grid. SuperQuadrics fitting with depth data of a cylinder and a box (right). Possible impacts. 3D Laser-Camera System can provide 2D/3D measurements capturing 2D/3D data of an object (with distance and color information) for indoor applications. Object recognition and pose estimation algorithms can be applied for: - detection and reconstruction by math. models of different real objects (including complex objects, like human body, gesture recognition, etc.). - detection, classification and selection a definite thing in a heap of different objects for robotic manufacturing (such as a search an object in mechanical details laying in mess). - different scientific and industrial projects.

(www.mariecurie2011.pl) Impacts on career. The project has strong impacts on career development, helping in: - developing the professional skills in computer vision, human-machine interaction, robotics and algorithm developing; - getting an experience in resource, time and money management; - supervising students, getting experience in teaching with lectures and practical exercises; - making collaboration with leading research groups and centers in computer vision and robotics both in Italy and abroad, incl. for searching possibilities of funding; - publishing papers, participating in international conferences with oral presentations. - strengthening the researcher reputation. The experience obtained in during the project must be valuable for future work at a research center or an industrial company. Pagina 7 di 7
