Development of a Forward-Hemispherical Vision Sensor for Remote Control of a Small Mobile Robot and for Acquisition of Visual-Information
The target of this research is to develop a common-use sensor, which is useful for navigation and mission for rescue work. By combined use of ODV (OmniDirectional Vision) with a hemispherical forward-visual-field using a direct and reflection hybrid optical system, and MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical Systems) IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit), the common-use sensor outputs a real-time image for remote control of the mobile robot and an environment map, including information on three-dimensional own-position, with a continuous panorama image for searching victims and for making a rescue plan.
