Human-Centered, Task Specific Visual Planning for Robotic Applications

Cybernet performed task-specific driving experiments to collect eye tracking data for both onboard and remote navigation, and developed an active vision task-specific robot planning system which models the human vision system to flexibly support a wide variety of planning control strategies. This was accomplished by developing a stronger theoretical model of the human vision system and the strategies used to accomplish visual tasks, collecting significant empirical data to support this theory, and developing a working model used to test and refine it. Based on this model, a proof-of-concept robot planner was developed and implemented to demonstrate the applicability of this approach to advanced robotic target perception.
