Multisensor controlled robot system for recognizing and tracking moving multiple objects

1999-11-01
This paper presents a cost-efficient, real-time vision-sensor system for identifying, locating and tracking objects that are unknown and randomly placed on a moving conveyor belt. The visual information obtained from a conventional frame-store unit and an end-effector based proximity sensor outputs are incorporated in a fuzzy-logic control algorithm to make the robotic manipulator grasp moving objects. The robot movements are going to be the result of the comparative measurements made by the sensors after the motion of the moving target is predicted and the gripper is brought into a zone close to the object to be grasped by the application of a vision system. The mobile object is traced by controlling the motion of the end-effector with an end-effector based infrared proximity sensors and conveyor position encoder by keeping the gripper's axis to pass through a median plane of the moving object. With this procedure and using the fuzzy-logic control, the system is adapted to pursue of a mobile object. Laboratory experiments are presented to demonstrate the performance Of this system, (C) 1999 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

MULTITARGET PARTICLE FILTER BASED TRACK BEFORE DETECT ALGORITHM FOR TRACKING OF SPAWNING TARGETS
Eyili, Mehmet; Demirekler, Mübeccel (2014-04-25)
In this paper, two proposed Track Before Detect (TBD) algorithms for spawning targets on the basis of raw radar measurements are described. These algorithms are developed by using multi-model particle filter method. To improve the efficiency of particle filter a novel reduced order model is introduced. The algorithms are confirmed by using the simulation results and their performances are analyzed on the basis of the probability of target existence and Root Mean Square (RMS) estimation accuracy for very low...
Real-Time Moving Target Search
Undeger, Cagatay; Polat, Faruk (2007-11-23)
In this paper, we propose a real-time moving target search algorithm for dynamic and partially observable environments, modeled as grid world. The proposed algorithm, Real-time Moving Target Evaluation Search (MTES), is able to detect the closed directions around the agent, and determine the best direction that avoids the nearby obstacles, leading to a moving target which is assumed to be escaping almost optimally. We compared our proposal with Moving Target Search (NITS) and observed a significant improvem...
Electromagnetic Object Recognition for Dielectric Coated Conductors Based on WD-PCA Type Fused Feature Extraction
Sayan, Gönül (2012-01-01)
This paper presents the application of a real-time electromagnetic object classification technique to recognize dielectric coated conducting objects using their wideband scattered signals received at arbitrary combinations of aspect and polarization. The suggested classifier design technique depends on the use of Singularity Expansion Method (SEM) to represent a given electromagnetic scatterer by its natural resonances. A quadratic time-frequency transformation, the Wigner distribution (WD), is used to extr...
Electromagnetic Signal Processing for Feature Extraction and Classification of Lossy Dielectric Targets
Sayan, Gönül (2013-08-15)
This paper presents the application of a real-time electromagnetic target classification technique to recognize dispersive dielectric objects with varying loss characteristics. The suggested classifier design technique is operative at the resonance region and is based on the use of Singularity Expansion Method (SEM) to represent a given electromagnetic scatterer by its natural response. A multi-aspect database of wide band scattered signals are processed to extract target features with the ultimate aim of t...
Visual detection and tracking of moving objects
Ergezer, Hamza; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (2007-06-13)
In this paper, primary steps of a visual surveillance system are presented: moving object detection and tracking of these moving objects. Running average method has been used to detect the moving objects in the video, which is taken from a static camera. Tracking of foreground objects has been realized by using a Kalman filter. After background subtraction, morphological operators are used to remove noises detected as foreground. Active contour models (snakes) are the segmentation tools for the extracted fo...
