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.

DR 2.2: Stereo- and omni-directional vision for human- assisted exploration

Vision plays an essential role in the robot perception and also serves as the primary source of information for robot tele-operation. There are many possible disaster scenarios, where knowledge about the presence or absence of specific types of objects is useful. We present the results of WP2 on visual-conceptual modeling for situation awareness during the second year of NIFTi. We focused on vision for human assisted exploration (MS2.2). We contributed in device calibration, machine learning for image understanding, car detection, terrain classification, navigation and orientation and human body part localization.
