About this Research Topic
The study of robot intelligence explores adaptive mechanisms to enable or facilitate intelligent behavior in complex and changing environments. Advances aim to exploit tolerance for imprecision, uncertainty and partial truth to achieve tractability, robustness and low-cost solutions. These techniques are now being used widely by field engineers to solve a whole range of hitherto intractable problems, especially in robotic society.
One particular focus of robot intelligence is the introduction of intelligent vision systems for recognition. Recognition systems are essential for robots to be able to function in complex and changing environments. Many researchers have started to pay attention to how mobile and humanoid robots will be applied to the real world, and how we can best enable the transition. As an example, traffic sign recognition tasks are currently being explored in detail as traffic sign recognition will play a vital role in the future of robotic applications in settings such as public roads, high streets or industrial settings.
The aim of this Research Topic is to bring together academics and industrial practitioners to exchange and discuss the latest innovations and applications of intelligent vision systems in robotics. This Research Topic is specifically devoted to new activities in computer vision for mobile and humanoid robots and welcomes submissions related to the real-world applications of such devices.
Relevant themes include, but are not limited to:
• Computer vision for mobile and humanoid robotic systems
• Artificial intelligence and algorithms for intelligent recognition systems
• Traffic sign detection and classification for robotic systems
