Spatiotemporal Context in Robot Vision: Detection of Static Objects in the RoboCup Four Legged League

Pablo Guerrero, Javier Ruiz-del-Solar, Rodrigo Palma-Amestoy

Abstract

Having as a main motivation the development of robust and high performing robot vision systems that can operate in dynamic environments, we propose a context-based generic vision system for a mobile robot with a mobile camera. We choose as a first application for this vision system, the detection of static objects in the RoboCup Four Legged League domain. Preliminary results using real video sequences are presented.
