ROS Semantic Mapping on a Mobile Robot using Convolutional Networks
 
02:10
A ros package for easily using a DCNN on your mobile robot to automatically label areas in the robot's workspace with place labels. These areas can be used, for example, for better and higher level planning through space.

Vision-only autonomous navigation using topometric maps
 
01:48
http://eprints.qut.edu.au/61572/1/IROS13_0810_FI.pdf This paper presents a mapping and navigation system for a mobile robot, which uses vision as its sole sensor modality. The system enables the robot to navigate autonomously, plan paths and avoid obstacles using a vision based topometric map of its environment. The map consists of a globally-consistent pose-graph with a local 3D point cloud attached to each of its nodes. These point clouds are used for direction independent loop closure and to dynamically generate 2D metric maps for locally optimal path planning. Using this locally semi-continuous metric space, the robot performs shortest path planning instead of following the nodes of the graph - as is done with most other vision-only navigation approaches. The system exploits the local accuracy of visual odometry in creating local metric maps, and uses pose graph SLAM, visual appearance-based place recognition and point clouds registration to create the topometric map. The ability of the framework to sustain vision-only navigation is validated experimentally, and the system is provided as open-source software.

Crown-of-thorns starfish Detection system - COTSBot
 
00:29
This work presents a novel vision-based underwater robotic system for the identification and control of Crown-Of-Thorns starfish (COTS) in coral reef environments. COTS have been identified as one of the most significant threats to Australia's Great Barrier Reef. These starfish literally eat coral, impacting large areas of reef and the marine ecosystem that depends on it. Evidence has suggested that land-based nutrient runoff has accelerated recent outbreaks of COTS requiring extensive use of divers to manually inject biological agents into the starfish in an attempt to control population numbers. Facilitating this control program using robotics is the goal of our research.

Crown-Of-Thorns Starfish detection
 
02:30
Crown-Of-Thorns Starfish (Acanthaster planci) are described as one of the most significant threats to the Great Barrier Reef. Since the 1960's, land-based nutrient runoff has accelerated outbreaks of COTS which are destroying large areas of reef. Link to project page: https://wiki.qut.edu.au/display/cyphy/COTSBot
