报告题目:Robust Perception for Robots: Sensor Fusion from Algorithm to Device Design


AbstractCombining multiple sensor modalities to achieve more robust understanding of environment and robot status is an emerging research area in robot navigation and autonomous driving. To fuse sensors such as camera, lidar, inertial measurement unit (IMU), wheel encoder, etc., one must solve problems in synchronization, calibration, signal correspondence, and data fusion. In this talk, I will discuss the recent progress that we have made in sensor fusion to address many problems in autonomous driving and robot navigation using autonomous motorcycle and NASA Robonaut as examples. We will also discuss how augmented reality development on mobile devices benefit from the sensor fusion approach in robotics. Moreover, addressing perception challenges after sensory data are collected from individual modalities may limit perception potential; I will talk about sensor fusion at device level where we combine different sensory modalities into a single device to achieve new promising capabilities in applications such as underwater communication & ranging, and robotic grasping.
