On the Induction of Topological Maps from Sequences of Colour Histograms
Werner, Felix, Sitte, Joaquin, & Maire, Frederic D. (2007) On the Induction of Topological Maps from Sequences of Colour Histograms. In Digital Image Computing: Techniques and Applications (DICTA), 3-5/12/2007, Glenelg, South Australia, Australia.
This paper presents an appearance--based method to automatically determine places from vision data for topological mapping. The approach exploits the continuity of the visual appearance of consecutive images when a robot traverses the environment. Places are determined by clustering colour histograms, and a probabilistic filtering strategy eliminates spurious places with weak evidence.
Further, we discuss steps towards the induction of the topology of an environment from a sequence of visited places. Particularly, our system faces the problem of physically different places which appear identical in perception space.
We present results from experiments on two data sets, one consist of panoramic images and another one includes images from a standard camera.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
