Abstract:

The main result of the proposed research program will be an integrated activity recognition and modeling software system that will operate on-board a mobile robot equipped with video cameras, and operating in highly dynamic and cluttered environments. The software will include a user feedback capability enabling the operator to teach the robot new activity models and correct its behavior dynamically while deployed. The system will be validated by performance evaluation experiments conducted on-board the robot, and on other video that emulates robot motion and cameras. Our Phase 1 results demonstrate that group activity recognition by a robot is feasible, and that instructors can intuitively specify TTP models using our prototype GUI.
