Detail of the student project

Topic:Multimodal recognition of objects and victims
Department:Katedra kybernetiky
Supervisor:Doc. Ing. Tomáš Svoboda Ph.D.
Announce as:DP,BP,PMI,SOP,PRO
Center for Machine Perception, Department of Cybernetics, contributes to the EU project NIFTi by developing visual algorithms for object/victim detection and robot localization. Among many other sensors, The robot carries an omnidirectional camera, a thermo camera, rotating 3D lidar, and optionally also RGB-Depth sensor on board.

During a search and rescue mission the robot is expected to locate victims and objects and computer their positions in 3D. CMP developed several methods. The goal of this work is mainly robustifying algorithms by combinigng multiple data (thermal, visual, depth, ...)
