(closed) Master Project: Robot Walking in a Piecewise Planar World

Short Description Companion robots, such as the humanoid robot NAO manufactured by Aldebaran Robotics, should be able to move on non-planar surfaces, such as going up- or downstairs. This implies that the robot is able to perceive the floor and to extract piecewise planar surfaces, such as the stairs, independently of the floor type. This …

(closed) Master Project: Spatio-temporal fusion of range and stereo data for high-quality depth sequences

Short Description High-quality depth sequences are required by lots of applications such as 3DTV and film industry. The current range cameras are based on time of flight (TOF) and provide either low-resolution (e.g. Mesa SR4000) or mid-resolution (e.g. Kinect 2) depth maps. Commonly, these cameras are used along with a stereoscopic pair of color cameras …

(closed) Master Project: Visual Action Recognition with Fisher-Kernel Encoding of Time Series

Short Description In this project we address the problem of recognizing human actions in a video sequence. Unlike previous approaches, we aim at developing a method able to continuously recognize and segment actions. For this purpose a per-frame rather than a per-video representation is needed. This means that the data (short videos) are represented as …

(closed) Master Project: Audio-Visual Event Localization with the Humanoid Robot NAO

Short Descrption The PERCEPTION team investigates the computational principles underlying human-robot interaction. Under this broad topic, this master project will investigate the use of computer vision and audio signal processing methods enabling a robot to localize events that are both seen and heard, such as a group of people engaged in a conversation or in an informal …

(closed) Master Project: Sound-source localization based on audio-visual mapping learning

Deadline for sending applications: 30 November 2013. Project proposed by Radu Horaud and Antoine Deleforge. We propose to address the interesting and challenging problem of sound-source localization. A sound source is generally localized using the time-difference of arrival (TDOA) between pairs of microphones. In general, the microphones are arranged in a linear or circular array …

(closed) Master Project: Representation of color-depth data using wavelets on weighted undirected graphs

Deadline for sending applications: 30 November 2013. Project proposed by Radu Horaud, Marianne Clausel, and Georgios Evangelidis. The most successful image representation frameworks are based on the detection and localization of interest points, or keypoints [1]. Interest points are present in an image whenever the local image structure is rich, e.g., presence of edges or …
