About NIFTi
NIFTi is about human-robot cooperation. About teams of robots and humans doing tasks together, interacting together to try and reach a shared goal. NIFTi looks at how the robot could bear the human in mind. Literally. When determining what to do or say next in human-robot interaction; when, and how. NIFTi puts the human factor into cognitive robots, and human-robot team interaction in particular.   Each year, NIFTi evaluates its systems together with several USAR organizations. Rescue personnel teams up with NIFTi robots to carry out realistic missions, in real-life training areas.

3D Saliency Maps

In: Proceedings of 2011 IEEE Computer Society Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Workshops (CVPRW).

Eye tracking devices have been extensively used to study human selection mechanisms and promoted the development of computational models of visual attention, whose well known outcomes are the saliency maps. Among the eye trackers, wearable ones have the advantages of allowing the estimation of the Point of Regard (POR) while performing natural tasks, instead of experimental, static lab settings. The motion of the viewer makes localization necessary to collect data in a coherent reference frame. In this work we present a framework for the estimation and mapping of the sequence of 3D PORs collected by a wearable device in unstructured, experimental settings. The result is a three-dimensional map of gazed objects, which we call 3D Saliency Map and constitutes the novel contribution of this work.
