Paper Abstract

The development of anthropomorphic robots for simple autonomous operations such as grasping of tools requires algorithms for automatic recognition and pose estimation of the objects. Correlation-based pattern recognition offers a robust set of tools for pose-specific detection and identification of objects. This paper discusses a system-level approach to image understanding whereby a robot is provided with training data (in the form of a computer model and an associated matched filter set), is presented with a view of the target object, and is expected to indicate recognition and to calculate a six degree-of-freedom pose estimate for the object. The pose information would then be used to specify a grasping orientation for the robot's hand. Examples are given of a proof-of-concept demonstration of an approach for an anthropomorphic robot developed at the Johnson Space Center.
