Mobile robots suffer from sensory data corruption due to body oscillations and disturbances. In particular, information loss on images captured with onboard cameras can be very high, and such loss may become irreversible or computationally costly to undo. In this paper, we propose a novel method to minimize average motion blur captured by such mobile visual sensors. To this end, we derive a motion blur metric (MMBM) that can be computed in real-time by using only inertial sensor measurements and validate it through comparisons with optic flow computations. The applicability of MMBM is illustrated through a motion blur minimizing system implemented on the SensoRHex hexapod robot by externally triggering an onboard camera based on MMBM values computed in real-time while the robot is walking straight on a flat surface. The resulting motion blur is compared to motion blur levels obtained with a regular, fixed frame-rate image acquisition schedule by both qualitative inspection and using a blind blur metric on captured images. MMBM based motion blur minimization system not only reduces average motion blur, but also avoids frames with extreme motion blur before an image gets corrupted by appropriately delaying the triggering of frame acquisition.

Mobile robots suffer from sensory data corruption due to body oscillations and motion disturbances. In particular, information loss in images captured with on board cameras can be very high, may become irreversible or computationally costly to compensate. In this thesis, a novel method to minimize average motion blur captured by such mobile visual sensors is proposed. To this end, an inertial sensor data based motion blur metric, MMBM, is derived. The metric can be computed in real time. Its accuracy is val...

A behavior based robot control system using neuro-fuzzy approach
Öğüt, Demet; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Department of Computer Engineering (2003)
In autonomous navigation of mobile robots the dynamic environment is a source of problems. Because it is not possible to model all the possible conditions, the key point in the robot control is to design a system that is adaptable to different conditions and robust in dynamic environments. This study presents a reactive control system for a Khepera robot with the ability to navigate in a dynamic environment for reaching goal objects. The main motivation of this research is to design a robot control, which i...
The learning and use of traversability affordance using range images on a mobile robot
Ugur, Emre; Dogar, Mehmet R.; Cakmak, Maya; Şahin, Erol (2007-04-14)
We are interested in how the concept of affordances can affect our view to autonomous robot control, and how the results obtained from autonomous robotics can be reflected back upon the discussion and studies on the concept of affordances. In this paper, we studied how a mobile robot, equipped with a 3D laser scanner, can learn to perceive the traversability affordance and use it to wander in a room filled with spheres, cylinders and boxes. The results showed that after learning, the robot can wander around...
Optimal initialization of manipulation dynamics by vorticity model of robot hand preshaping. Part I: Vorticity model
Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref; Tekkaya, E (Wiley, 2000-04-01)
The manipulation phase of a multifingered robot hand is initialized, upon contact, by the impact force patterns imparted to the object at contact points, in the final state of a preshaped hand closure. The object then inherits from contacts different helix motion tendencies (translation, rotation) as the initial conditions of manipulation. These motion tendencies are caused by the forces/torques imparted to the object upon impact, and are generated by changes of momenta of the closing hand preshape at the c...
