Cognitive Vision

Cognitive science is the interdisciplinary study of mind and intelligence, embracing philosophy, psychology, artificial intelligence, neuroscience, linguistics, and anthropology. Attempts to understand the mind and its operation go back at least to the Ancient Greeks, when philosophers such as Plato and Aristotle tried to explain the nature of human knowledge. The study of mind remained […]

Visual SLAM

The simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) problem is that of estimating the robot’s position and progressively building a map of its environment. The difficulties of solving SLAM arise from the finite precision of the sensors and actuators of the robot, given real-life situations. For the low layer navigation module, a SLAM algorithm with sensory input […]
