Abstract:

THIS PROJECT IS A TECHNICAL STUDY OF A DISTRIBUTED ROBOT CONTROL SYSTEM. THE SENSORY PROCESSING PORTION OF THECONTROLLER WILL BE STUDIED IN DETAIL WITH ATTENTION BEING FOCUSED ON INDUSTRIAL AND MOBILE TELEROBOTIC APPLICATIONS IN THE NUCLEAR POWER INDUSTRY. A THREE DIMINSIONAL MACHINE VISION SYSTEM AND PARALLEL COMPUTATION HARDWARE WILL BE USED TO PROCESS DENSE PIXEL LEVEL INFORMATION FROM VIDEO CAMERAS TO HIGH LEVEL OBJECT FEATURE INFORMATION USEFUL TO A ROBOT CONTROLLER OR HUMAN SUPERVISOR. IMAGE PROCESSING ALGORITHMS FOR A MULTIPLE-LIGHT-STRIPE DUAL-CAMERA SYSTEM WILL BE STUDIED TO DETERMINE WHICH PROCESSES MAY BE IMPLEMENTED ON TRANSPUTER-BASED PARALLEL AND PIPELINED HARDWARE. THE PLANNED SENSORY PROCESSOR MODULE WILL HAVE A STANDARD INTERFACE SO THAT IT MAY COMMUNICATE WITH EXISTING CONTROLLERS.
