Project Funding: National Natural Science Foundation of China

Contact£ºProf. Dr. Jiandong Tian

Introduction: The complex variation of illumination and meteorological condition causes many problems to the autonomous task and the active safety of Human-robot coexistence, which have a negative impact on the robustness and environment adaption of vision algorithms. Finding effective and robust methods to deal with this problem is one of the most important researches in computer vision and the related fields. Our solution benefits from both hardware and software, by utilizing a multi-modal information (image data, polarization, and radar) to solve this problem. This multi-modal information can guarantee the robustness and real-time performance of robot perceptual system. The survey on the current research trends further shows that this proposed multi-modal based study will be a prospective research topic. We have currently achieved preliminary results for the proposed research, thus provide a solid foundation for further work. This proposed method will be of great significance for the research of active environment perception of Human-robot coexistence.

9. The basic research on an intelligent environment for minimally invasive spinal surgery

Project Funding: National Natural Science Foundation of China

Contact£ºProf. Dr. Yandong Tang

The application of Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgery(MISS) is limited by some scientific and technology problems, such as the narrowed operational field of vision, the absence of continuous observation of instrument in spine£¬the lack of objective security for operation and the radiation damage to the surgeon. To solve these problems,the purpose of this project focuses on research works to realize instrument realtime positioning in human body, operation process visualization,robot force feedbacking, risk evaluationg and warning.

10. Online Learning for Robot Scene Understanding

Project Funding: National Natural Science Foundation of China

Contact£ºProf. Dr. Yang Cong

  For scene classification, we intend to propose an effective online learning theory and establish a unified online learning framework. For modeling, depending on the low rank property of real data, we design a convex optimization model for online metric learning, which can decrease the complexity of the model and overcome over-fitting, and we pursuit the expectation of the model to guarantee the converge and use the stochastic optimization to achieve an efficient solution. For scene representation, we fuse the spatio-temporal cues and design an adaptive feature selection model based on group sparsty theory. Depending on this research, we will solve the overfitting and non-converge issues for online metric learning algorithm in theory, and achieve online learning for big data.
