Robots don’t exist in isolation from human society; we create them to help us. What are the big challenges that society faces?
For a camera moving through the environment we frequently wish to track particular world points from one frame to the next. We’ll do a quick introduction to the very large field of feature detection and matching using Harris corner features.
Digital images are everywhere: in your phone, on your hard drive, on the internet. We can access still pictures, movies and streams from live cameras all around the world. Let’s talk about digital images and how we can get them into the MATLAB environment where we can work on them.
Many scenes, particularly of man-made environments, have very dominant lines due to the edges of objects. The Hough transform is a common technique for finding dominant lines, and we ill examine how it works and apply it to a real image.
We learn a method for succinctly describing the structure of a serial-link manipulator in terms of its Denavit-Hartenberg parameters, a widely used notation in robotics.
