KEYNOTE SPEAKER

The Role of Actions and Learning in Robotic Vision

Guido de Croon
Delft University of Technology
Netherlands


Brief Bio
Received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) at Maastricht University, the Netherlands. His research interest lies with computationally efficient, bio-inspired algorithms for robot autonomy, with an emphasis on computer vision. Since 2008 he has worked on algorithms for achieving autonomous flight with small and light-weight flying robots, such as the DelFly flapping wing MAV. In 2011-2012, he was a research fellow in the Advanced Concepts Team of the European Space Agency, where he studied topics such as optical-flow-based control algorithms for extraterrestrial landing scenarios. After his return at TU Delft, his work has included fully autonomous flight of a 20-gram DelFly, a new theory on active distance perception with optical flow, and a swarm of tiny drones able to explore unknown environments. Currently, he is Full Professor at TU Delft and scientific lead of the Micro Air Vehicle lab (MAVLab) of Delft University of Technology.


Abstract
Robots are embodied entities. As such, their visual perception can be designed to be intimately intertwined with their ability to move and act. In my presentation, I will explain a fundamental property of optic flow control, which has important implications also for visual servoing and monocular SLAM. Specifically, I will discuss how active control can allow a robot to disentangle velocity and distance when using the optic flow from a single camera. Subsequently, I will discuss how self-supervised learning processes can further enhance the capabilities of robots that initially possess optic flow control capabilities

SCOPE

Robotics is a field that is closely connected to Computer Vision and Intelligent Systems. Research and development of robots require technologies originating from the other two areas; the research work in Computer Vision has often been driven by needs in Robotics; Intelligent Systems models and software have often been developed aiming at applications in the areas of physical agents, i.e. robots, or in areas  related to scene understanding, video and image processing, and many other aspects of computer vision. There is a need for a venue where these three research communities, often isolated, meet and discuss innovation possibilities driven by the intersection of these highly synergetic fields.
