Fall 2022 GRASP on Robotics: Matthew Johnson-Roberson, Carnegie Mellon University, “Lessons from the Field: Deep Learning and Machine Perception for field robots”
December 2 @ 10:30 am - 11:45 am
This is a hybrid event with in-person attendance in Wu and Chen and virtual attendance via Zoom.
Mobile robots now deliver vast amounts of sensor data from large unstructured environments. In attempting to process and interpret this data there are many unique challenges in bridging the gap between prerecorded data sets and the field. This talk will present recent work addressing the application of machine learning techniques to mobile robotic perception. We will discuss solutions to the assessment of risk in self-driving vehicles, thermal cameras for object detection and mapping and finally object detection and grasping and manipulation in underwater contexts. Real field data will guide this process and we will show results on deployed field robotic vehicles.
