A theory of photometric stereo for a general class of reflectance maps
Photometric stereo is an image processing technique for 2$1\over 2$ dimensional surface reconstruction from local shading. The classical theory of photometric stereo has been developed only for surfaces that reflect in a ...
A semi-autonomous mobile robot/teleoperator with applications as an aid for severely handicapped people
A framework for a practical, easy-to-use system which can allow severely handicapped people to control and interact with their home and work environments is presented. Software written for a personal computer allows the ...
Modeling and analyzing fractal point processes
The temporal pattern of the action potential discharges of auditory nerve fibers have been presumed to be random in nature and well described as a renewal process. Recently, we observed that the discharges were characterized ...
The use of a laser imaging system for automated vehicle guidance and space servicing tasks
This thesis presents a simulation of a laser imaging system for automated vehicle guidance and space servicing tasks. Data generated by this system are used to command a robot navigating in an unconstrained natural terrain. ...
