Issue Date:October 2004
pp. 50-57
Recognizing and recording activities of daily living is a significant problem in elder care. Ubicomp systems targeting ADL recognition have been limited in the number of ADLs they recognize, the detail they recognize, and their robustness. A new paradigm f...
Bayesian Filtering for Location Estimation
Found in: IEEE Pervasive Computing
By Dieter Fox, Jeffrey Hightower, Lin Liao, Dirk Schulz, Gaetano Borriello
Issue Date:July 2003
pp. 24-33
<p>Location awareness is important to many pervasive computing applications. Unfortunately, no location sensor takes perfect measurements or works well in all situations. So, it is crucial to represent uncertainty in sensed location information and c...
Tracking Multiple Moving Objects with a Mobile Robot
Found in: Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, IEEE Computer Society Conference on
By Dirk Schulz, Wolfram Burgard, Dieter Fox, Armin B. Cremers
Issue Date:December 2001
pp. 371
One of the goals in the field of mobile robotics is the development of mobile platforms which operate in populated environments. For many tasks it is therefore highly desirable that a robot can determine the positions of the humans in its surrounding. In t...
Integrated Plan-Based Control of Autonomous Robots in Human Environments
Found in: IEEE Intelligent Systems
By Michael Beetz, Tom Arbuckle, Thorsten Belker, Armin B. Cremers, Dirk Schulz, Maren Bennewitz, Wolfram Burgard, Dirk Hähnel, Dieter Fox, Henrik Grosskreutz
Issue Date:September 2001
pp. 56-65
<p>The authors present recent extensions to the Rhino robot. They identify computational principles enabling Rhino to accomplish complex, diverse, and dynamically changing tasks in human working environments. These principles include plan-based high-...
Using the Condensation Algorithm for Robust, Vision-based Mobile Robot Localization
Found in: Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, IEEE Computer Society Conference on
By Frank Dellaert, Wolfram Burgard, Dieter Fox, Sebastian Thrun
Issue Date:June 1999
pp. 2588
To navigate reliably in indoor environments, a mobile robot must know where it is. This includes both the ability of globally localizing the robot from scratch, as well as tracking the robot's position once its location is known. Vision has long been adver...
Gaussian Processes for Data-Efficient Learning in Robotics and Control
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence
By Marc Peter Deisenroth,Dieter Fox,Carl Edward Rasmussen
Issue Date:May 2014
pp. 1
Autonomous learning has been a promising direction in control and robotics for more than a decade since data-driven learning allows to reduce the amount of engineering knowledge, which is otherwise required. However, autonomous reinforcement learning (RL) ...
Multipath Sparse Coding Using Hierarchical Matching Pursuit
Found in: 2013 IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR)
By Liefeng Bo,Xiaofeng Ren,Dieter Fox
Issue Date:June 2013
pp. 660-667
Complex real-world signals, such as images, contain discriminative structures that differ in many aspects including scale, invariance, and data channel. While progress in deep learning shows the importance of learning features through multiple layers, it i...
DuploTrack: a real-time system for authoring and guiding duplo block assembly
Found in: Proceedings of the 25th annual ACM symposium on User interface software and technology (UIST '12)
