VISOR - Visual Perception System for a Social Robot
Project Type: General Research Project
Research Field: Multisensor Fusion and Multirobot Systems for 3D Reconstruction
Sponsors: EURON-European Robotics Research Network Ref: CEC/DGIS/Cont. No IST-2000-26048
Time span: 09/2005-09/2006

The aim of the research study of the VIsual System for a SOcial Robot Project (VISOR) is to generate in-depth knowledge of the visual human oriented perception system for a social robot. Our research study will investigate how the requirements for accomplishing a visual task determine the optimal architecture of a vision system. The issues that will be considered are: human and object representation, selection of low-level and high-level vision modules and control schemata.
