  • Cass, Todd A. (1988-05-01)
    Techniques, suitable for parallel implementation, for robust 2D model-based object recognition in the presence of sensor error are studied. Models and scene data are represented as local geometric features and robust ...
  • Ferrell, Cynthia (1993-05-01)
    This thesis presents methods for implementing robust hexpod locomotion on an autonomous robot with many sensors and actuators. The controller is based on the Subsumption Architecture and is fully distributed over ...
  • Beal, Jacob (2003-05-01)
    For a very large network deployed in space with only nearby nodes able to talk to each other, we want to do tasks like robust routing and data storage. One way to organize the network is via a hierarchy, but hierarchies ...
  • Alter, Tao Daniel (1992-09-01)
    Alignment is a prevalent approach for recognizing 3D objects in 2D images. A major problem with current implementations is how to robustly handle errors that propagate from uncertainties in the locations of image ...
  • Hofmann, Andreas (2006-04-28)
    Effective use of robots in unstructured environments requires that they have sufficient autonomy and agility to execute task-level commands successfully. A challenging example of such a robot is a bipedal walking machine. ...
  • DeHon, Andre (1993-09-01)
    As multiprocessor system size scales upward, two important aspects of multiprocessor systems will generally get worse rather than better: (1) interprocessor communication latency will increase and (2) the probability ...
  • Brooks, Rodney A. (1985-09-01)
    We describe a new architecture for controlling mobile robots. Layers of control system are built to let the robot operate at increasing levels of competence. Layers are made up of asynchronous modules which communicate ...
  • Thompson, Clay Matthew (1993-02-01)
    Methods for fusing two computer vision methods are discussed and several example algorithms are presented to illustrate the variational method of fusing algorithms. The example algorithms seek to determine planet ...
  • Whelan, Thomas; Johannsson, Hordur; Kaess, Michael; Leonard, John J.; McDonald, John (2012-09-17)
    This paper describes extensions to the Kintinuous algorithm for spatially extended KinectFusion, incorporating the following additions: (i) the integration of multiple 6DOF camera odometry estimation methods for robust ...
  • Leopold, D.A.; Fitzgibbons, J.C.; Logothetis, N.K. (1995-11-01)
    When stimuli presented to the two eyes differ considerably, stable binocular fusion fails, and the subjective percept alternates between the two monocular images, a phenomenon known as binocular rivalry. The influence of ...
  • Hiller, Martha J. (1995-05-23)
    Most computational models of neurons assume that their electrical characteristics are of paramount importance. However, all long-term changes in synaptic efficacy, as well as many short-term effects, are mediated by ...
  • Yip, Andrew; Sinha, Pawan (2001-12-13)
    One of the key challenges in face perception lies in determining the contribution of different cues to face identification. In this study, we focus on the role of color cues. Although color appears to be a salient attribute ...
  • Ratan, Aparna Lakshmi (1995-07-21)
    This research project is a study of the role of fixation and visual attention in object recognition. In this project, we build an active vision system which can recognize a target object in a cluttered scene efficiently ...
  • Brotsky, Daniel (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, 1984-12)
    I review three systems which do simulation in different domains. I observe the following commonality in the representations underlying the simulations: • The representations used for individuals tend to be domain-dependent. ...
  • Saund, Eric (1988-10-01)
    This report shows how knowledge about the visual world can be built into a shape representation in the form of a descriptive vocabulary making explicit the important geometrical relationships comprising objects' shapes. ...
  • Sinha, Pawan; Torralba, Antonio (2001-08-01)
    Brightness judgments are a key part of the primate brain's visual analysis of the environment. There is general consensus that the perceived brightness of an image region is based not only on its actual luminance, but also ...
  • Sussman, Gerald Jay; Wisdom, Jack (2002-11-01)
    Classical mechanics is deceptively simple. It is surprisingly easy to get the right answer with fallacious reasoning or without real understanding. To address this problem we use computational techniques to communicate ...
  • Atkeson, Christopher Granger (1987-02-01)
    The goal of this thesis is to apply the computational approach to motor learning, i.e., describe the constraints that enable performance improvement with experience and also the constraints that must be satisfied by ...
  • Rodrigues, Rodrigo; Liskov, Barbara (2003-12-17)
    This paper presents Rosebud, a new Byzantine faulttolerantstorage architecture designed to be highly scalableand deployable in the wide-area. To support massiveamounts of data, we need to partition the data among thenodes. ...
  • Brady, Michael; Horn, Berthold K.P. (1981-11-01)
    The use of rotationally symmetric operators in vision is reviewed and conditions for rotational symmetry are derived for linear and quadratic forms in the first and second partial directional derivatives of a function ...
