oa CSIR Science Scope - Computer vision for an autonomous mobile robot : ICT
Mobile robots are well suited for remote reconnaissance and remote inspections, especially in environments that are dangerous or difficult for people. Examples include the remote investigation of damaged or contaminated buildings; remote inspections of, for example, the breakwater dolosse at coastal ports; and the inspection of large liquid storage tanks, which may present space constraints and harbour chemical vapours. Autonomous mobile robotics is an active and growing research area internationally. CSIR researchers in mobile intelligent autonomous systems are working on ways to improve a robot's visual interpretation of its environment for autonomous movement and intelligent inspection.
