#### Summary of 3D Vision

lesson

Let’s recap the important points from the topics we have covered about human depth perception, display of 3D images and estimating 3D scene structure using stereo and other types of sensors.

Let’s recap the important points from the topics we have covered about human depth perception, display of 3D images and estimating 3D scene structure using stereo and other types of sensors.

lesson

We revisit the simple 2-link planar robot and determine the inverse kinematic function using simple geometry and trigonometry.

lesson

We consider the simplest possible robot, which has one rotary joint and an arm.

lesson

The orientation of a body in 3D can be described by three angles, examples of which are Euler angles and roll-pitch-yaw angles. Note that in the MATLAB example at 8:24 note that recent versions of the Robotics Toolbox (9.11, 10.x) give a different result: >> rpy2r(0.1,0.2,0.3)ans = 0.9363 -0.2751 0.2184 0.2896 0.9564 -0.0370 -0.1987 0.0978 […]

Vision is useful to us and to almost all forms of life on the planet, perhaps robots could do more if they could also see. Robots could mimic human stereo vision or use cameras with superhuman capability such as wide angle or panoramic views.

lesson

Our planet is hurting and we need to understand better where the pain is and how the ecosystem is coping. We need data, but traditional methods are slow and expensive, can robots help?

lesson

The orientation of a body in 3D can also be described by two vectors, often called the approach and orientation vectors.
