SLAM has been implemented on the Wanderer-v1

Amirul has implemented the Simultaneous Localization And Mapping (SLAM) on our Wanderer-v1 robot. The implementation was done from scratch involving writing Python scripts for the kinematics, motion and sensor models, particle filter for localization and A-star search for path planning. Details of the project is available here.

Robot programming is going on

The messy wires of our customized mobile robots are troublesome. Time to get proper robotic kits. Nevertheless, the opportunity to directly fiddle with the electronic parts hopefully gives the students the extra knowledge and skills in electronic circuit.

Bacha’s paper on hybrid margin-based ROI face detection has been published in Visual Computing

Bacha‘s paper on “Face detection and tracking using hybrid margin-based ROI techniques” has been published in Springer’s journal Visual Computing. Congratulations to Bacha! This study is to solve the problem of low accuracy and slow processing speed for real-time face detection and tracking systems. A margin-based region of interest approach with fixed and dynamic margin …
