Computer Vision

TRACLabs Inc. engineers have decades of experience in developing and fielding computer vision systems for robot applications. These vision systems have been used to track people, recognize their gestures, identify objects, return the six degree-of-freedom pose of objects and perform terrain analysis for obstacle avoidance and path planning. Our computer vision software runs in real-time using range images from LIDAR or stereo.

Object Recognition
Object recognition is one of the most difficult computational problems for robots. The nearly infinite variety of objects in all kinds of poses makes recognizing objects from camera images difficult. TRACLabs Inc. researchers are tackling this problem by applying a sequence of specialized processing filters to this 3D data to extract object type, location and orientation.
