Algorithms for robotic visual search can benefit from the use of visual attention methods in order to reduce computational costs. Here, we describe how three distinct mechanisms of visual attention can be integrated and productively used to improve search performance. The first is viewpoint selection as has been proposed earlier using a greedy search over a probabilistic occupancy grid representation. Read More

In this paper, we investigate the effect of color space selection on detectability and discriminability of colored objects under various conditions. 20 color spaces from the literature are evaluated on a large dataset of simulated and real images. We measure the suitability of color spaces from two different perspectives: detectability and discriminability of various color groups. Read More

The contribution of this paper is twofold. The first is a novel dataset for studying behaviors of traffic participants while crossing. Our dataset contains more than 650 samples of pedestrian behaviors in various street configurations and weather conditions. Read More

In this paper we present a broad overview of the last 40 years of research on cognitive architectures. Although the number of existing architectures is nearing several hundred, most of the existing surveys do not reflect this growth and focus on a handful of well-established architectures. While their contributions are undeniable, they represent only a part of the research in the field. Read More

In this paper we present a novel dataset for a critical aspect of autonomous driving, the joint attention that must occur between drivers and of pedestrians, cyclists or other drivers. This dataset is produced with the intention of demonstrating the behavioral variability of traffic participants. We also show how visual complexity of the behaviors and scene understanding is affected by various factors such as different weather conditions, geographical locations, traffic and demographics of the people involved.

Despite the recent successes in robotics, artificial intelligence and computer vision, a complete artificial agent necessarily must include active perception. A multitude of ideas and methods for how to accomplish this have already appeared in the past, their broader utility perhaps impeded by insufficient computational power or costly hardware. The history of these ideas, perhaps selective due to our perspectives, is presented with the goal of organizing the past literature and highlighting the seminal contributions. Read More
