This video is about the experimental results of the following paper: Xieyuanli Chen, Hui Zhang, Huimin Lu, Junhao Xiao, Qihang Qiu and Yi Li. Robust SLAM system based on monocular vision and LiDAR for robotic urban search and rescue.



Abstract. In this paper, we propose a monocular SLAM system for robotic urban search and rescue (USAR). Based on it, most USAR tasks (e.g. localization, mapping, exploration and object recognition) can be fulfilled by rescue robots with only a single camera. The proposed system can be a promising basis to implement fully autonomous rescue robots. However, the feature-based map built by the monocular SLAM is difficult for the operator to understand and use. We therefore combine the monocular SLAM with a 2D LiDAR SLAM to realize a 2D mapping and 6D localization SLAM system which can not only obtain a real scale of the environment and make the map more friendly to users, but also solve the problem that the robot pose cannot be tracked by the 2D LiDAR SLAM when the robot climbing stairs and ramps. We test our system using a real rescue robot in simulated disaster environments. The experimental results show that good performance can be achieved using the proposed system in the USAR. The system has also been successfully applied in the RoboCup Rescue Robot League (RRL) competitions, where our rescue robot team entered the top 5 and won the Best in Class Small Robot Mobility in 2016 RoboCup RRL Leipzig Germany, and the champions of 2016 and 2017 RoboCup China Open RRL.

Supported by National University of Defense Technology, our team has designed the NuBot rescue robot from the mechanical structure to the electronic architecture and software system. Benefiting from the strong mechanical structure, our rescue robot has good mobility and is quite durable, so it will not be trapped even facing the highly cluttered and unstructured terrains in the urban search and rescue. The electronic architecture is built based on  industrial standards which can bear electromagnetic interference and physical impact from the intensive tasks. The software system is developed upon the Robot Operating System (ROS). Based on self-developed programs and several basic open source packages provided in the ROS, we developed a complete software system including the localization, mapping, exploration, object recognition, etc. Our robot system has been successfully applied and tested in the RoboCup Rescue Robot League (RRL) competitions, where our rescue robot team entered the top 5 and won the Best in Class small robot mobility in 2016 RoboCup RRL Leipzig Germany, and won the champions of 2016 and 2017 RoboCup China Open RRL competitions.


The following pictures show that our rescue robot participated in RoboCup 2016 RRL competition.

This video is about the experimental results of the following paper: Xieyuanli Chen, Huimin Lu, Junhao Xiao, Hui Zhang, Pan Wang. Robust relocalization based on active loop closure for real-time monocular SLAM. Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Computer Vision Systems (ICVS), 2017.


Abstract. Remarkable performance has been achieved using the state-of-the-art monocular Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) algorithms. However, tracking failure is still a challenging problem during the monocular SLAM process, and it seems to be even inevitable when carrying out long-term SLAM in large-scale environments. In this paper, we propose an active loop closure based relocalization system, which enables the monocular SLAM to detect and recover from tracking failures automatically even in previously unvisited areas where no keyframe exists. We test our system by extensive experiments including using the most popular KITTI dataset, and our own dataset acquired by a hand-held camera in outdoor large-scale and indoor small-scale real-world environments where man-made shakes and interruptions were added. The experimental results show that the least recovery time (within 5ms) and the longest success distance (up to 46m) were achieved comparing to other relocalization systems. Furthermore, our system is more robust than others, as it can be used in different kinds of situations, i.e., tracking failures caused by the blur, sudden motion and occlusion. Besides robots or autonomous vehicles, our system can also be employed in other applications, like mobile phones, drones, etc.

In this video, a ball, a robot and a piece of orange luggage are fixed at posi-tions (0, 144), (0, 7) and (0, -144) respectively. Then another robot with a Kinect sensor rotates around these objects following a circular trajectory centered at (0, 0) with the radius of 300cm. The robot moves at the speed of 3m/s and its heading points towards the origin all the time during the dynamic test. We marked the detected ball with grey sphere and obstacle with red/white cube in the video, and there have some disfluency because of the visualization of point cloud in TX1. From the video we can conclude that our algorithm can  detect the ball and obstacles accurately.

Abstract: Encirclement control enables a multi-robot system to rotate around a target while they still preserve a circular formation, which is useful in real world applications such as entrapping a hostile target. In this paper, a distributed control law is proposed for any number of anonymous and oblivious robots in random three dimensional positions to form a specified circular formation with any desired inter-robot angular distances (i.e. spacing) and encircle around the target. Arbitrary spacing is useful for a system composed of heterogeneous robots which, for example, possess different kinematics capabilities, since the spacing can be designed manually for any specific purpose. The robots are modelled by single-integrator models, and they can only sense the angular positions of their two neighboring robots, so the control law is distributed. Theoretical analysis and simulation results are provided to prove the stability and effectiveness of the proposed control strategy.

Biologically Inspired Visual Odometry Based on the Computational Model of Grid Cells for Mobile Robots. Proceedings of the 2016 IEEE Conference on Robotics and Biomimetics, 2016.

Abstract: Visual odometry is a core component of many visual navigation systems like visual simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM). Grid cells have been found as part of the path integration system in the rat's entorhinal cortex, and they provide inputs for place cells in the rat's hippocampus. Together with other cells, they constitute a positioning system in the brain. Some computational models of grid cells based on continuous attractor networks have also been proposed in the computational biology community, and using these models, self-motion information can be integrated to realize dead-reckoning. However, so far few researchers have tried to use these computational models of grid cells directly in robot visual navigation in the robotics community. In this paper, we propose to apply continuous attractor network model of grid cells to integrate the robot's motion information estimated from the vision system, so a biologically inspired visual odometry can be realized. The experimental results show that good dead-reckoning can be achieved for different mobile robots with very different motion velocities using our algorithm. We also implement a full visual SLAM system by simply combining the proposed visual odometry with a quite direct loop closure detection derived from the well-known RatSLAM, and comparable results can be achieved in comparison with RatSLAM.

Title

Real-time Terrain Classification for Rescue Robot Based on Extreme Learning Machine

Author

Yuhua Zhong, Junhao Xiao, Huimin Lu and Hui Zhang

Abstract

Full autonomous robots in urban search and rescue (USAR) have to deal with complex terrains. The real-time recognition of terrains in front could effectively improve the ability of pass for rescue robots. This paper presents a real-time terrain classification system by using a 3D LIDAR on a custom designed rescue robot. Firstly, the LIDAR state estimation and point cloud registration are running in parallel to extract the test lane region. Secondly, normal aligned radial feature (NARF) is extracted and downscaled by a distance based weighting method. Finally, an extreme learning machine (ELM) classifier is designed to recognize the types of terrains. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed system.

Title

Real-time Object Segmentation for Soccer Robots Based on Depth Images

Author

Qiu Cheng, Shuijun Yu, Qinghua Yu and Junhao Xiao


Abstract

Object detection and localization is a paramount important and challenging task in RoboCup MSL (Middle Size League). It has a strong constraint on real-time, as both the robot and obstacles (also robots) are moving quickly. In this paper, a real-time object segmentation approach is proposed, based on a RGB-D camera in which only the range information has been used. The method has four main steps, e.g., point cloud filtering, background points removing, clustering and object localization. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm can effectively detect and segment objects in 3D space in real-time.

This video is the accompanying video for the paper: Yuxi Huang, Ming Lv, Dan Xiong, Shaowu Yang, Huimin Lu, An Object Following Method Based on Computational Geometry and PTAM for UAV in Unknown Environments. Proceedings of the 2016 IEEE International Conference on Information and Automation, 2016.

Abstract: This paper introduces an object following method based on the computational geometry and PTAM for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle(UAV) in unknown environments. Since the object is easy to move out of the field of view(FOV) of the camera, and it is difficult to make it back to the field of camera view  just by relative attitude control, we propose a novel solution to re-find the object based on the visual simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) results by PTAM. We use a pad as the object which includes a letter H surrounded by a circle. We can get the 3D position of the center of the circle in camera coordinate system using the computational geometry. When the object moves out of the FOV of the camera, the Kalman filter is used to predict the object velocity, so the pad can be searched effectively. We demonstrate that the ambiguity of the pad's localization has little impact on object following through experiments. The experimental results also validate the effectiveness and efficiency of the proposed method.

三、课题发布区

1.基于RGB-D摄像头的目标检测和识别

研究背景

    在机器人比赛中,目标的检测和识别是移动自主机器人的基础问题之一,尤其是带有视觉感知且能与现实世界相互交互的移动机器人。目标识别对机器人来说是非常重要的一个环节,也是机器人实现协同协作、运动规划、控制决策等自主能力的前提,是自主移动机器人领域的热点问题。移动机器人在真实环境中的目标识别有一些基本因素:目标的多样性(纹理,无纹理和平面等),低精度传感器的图像噪声,视角的差异性和阴影等。

    本课题主要是研究基于RGB-D的目标检测和目标识别方法。基于视觉的识别过程中,怎样提取RGB-D图像中的3D特征是一个比较重要也是非常困难的问题。目标检测实际上主要是关键点检测,特征提取,特征分类,感兴趣区域的生成和目标定位等一系列环节完成的。移动机器人通过3D传感器获取包含颜色和深度信息的点云,可以分别通过形状特征、视觉特征和融合形状和视觉特征的方法对物体进行目标识别。然而,大部分的目标识别的算法计算量比较大,基于RGB-D的目标识别算法实时性一般达不到实际的应用要求。研究基于RGB-D的自主机器人实时识别算法对提高机器人在比赛环境中实时辨别障碍、环境感知能力等具有重要意义。

任务要求

    针对中型组足球机器人比赛环境,对低成本RGB-D摄像头获取的3D点云进行点云分割、特征提取,并根据提取的特征和特征描述算子实现目标的检测和识别,要求设计的算法必须满足实时性和鲁棒性,且识别率不低于90%。

1.Mechanical system


The Mechanical system of our whole MSL robot is subdivided into five main modules: the base frame, the ball handling mechanism, the electromagnet shooting system, the omnidirectional vision system and the front vision system, as illustrated in Fig.1a For the goalie robot, the ball handling mechanism, the electromagnet shooting device and the front vision system are removed, instead two RGB-D cameras are integrated as shown in Fig.1b.Each modules has its specific function.The base frame is a 4-wheel-configuration platform which can move in all direction and generate more traction force than a normal 3-wheel-configuration one.The each side of the ball handing mechanism contains a wheel, a DC motor, a set of transmission bevel-gear, a linear displacement transducer and a support mechanism. It enables the robot to catch and dribble a ball during the game.The electromagnet shooting system can be subdivided into three categories: spring mechanisms, pneumatic systems and solenoids.It enables the robot to pass the ball and shoot. The omnidirectional vision system which is composed of a convex mirror and a camera pointing upward towards the mirror not only makes the imaging resolution of the objects near the robot on the field constant and the imaging distortion of the objects far from the robot small in the vertical direction, but also enables the robot to acquire a very clear image of the scene which is very close to it, such as the robot itself. The front vision system and the RGB-D camera are auxiliary sensors for the regular robots and the goalie robot, respectively.

2.Industrial electrical system:


Our current electrical system uses PC-based control technology as shown in Fig 2,so that all vision and control algorithms are processed on the industrial PC. The industrial PC communicates with the EtherCAT system via Ethernet. In addition,the system also uses Elmo Motion Control (SOL-WHI 20/60) which is the intelligent miniature digital servo drive for the 150W DC brushless motor, the CANopen modular EL751 embedded in the EtherCAT which is used to realize communication between the industrial PC and the Elmo Motion Controls, the kicker driver,also named as shooting module, which is mainly composed of a relay and an IGBT FGA25N120ANTD. The PC can send control signals to the kicker driver for shooting or passing via the EtherCAT. The system can meet the demands of the RoboCup MSL competition and provide a good solution for the design of an intelligent robot.

3.Software based on ROS:


Our software is developed on Ubuntu, and it is also open source.Therefore, we also use ROS to build our NuBot software. The operating system is Ubuntu 14.04, and the version of ROS is Indigo. As shown in Fig.3, the software framework is divided into 5 main parts: the Prosilica Camera node and the OmniVision node; the UVC Camera node, the FrontVision node and the Kinect node; the NuBot Control node; the NuBot HWControl node; the RTDB and the WorldModel node. Two Kinect nodes replace the FrontVision node and the UVC Camera node for the goalie.

Led by Prof. Zhiqiang Zheng, our NuBot team was founded in 2004. Currently we have two full professors (Prof. Zhiqiang Zheng and Prof. Hui Zhang), one associate professor (Prof. Huimin Lu), one assistant professor (Dr. Junhao Xiao), and several graduate students. Till now, 8 team members have obtained their doctoral degree with the research on RoboCup Middle Size League (MSL), and more than 20 have obtained their master degrees. For more detail of each member please see NuBoters.


As shown in the figure below, five generations of robots have been created since 2004. We participated in RoboCup Simulation and Small Size League (SSL) initially. Since 2006, we have been participating in RoboCup MSL actively, e.g., we have been to Bremen, Germany (2006), Atlanta, USA (2007), Suzhou, China (2008), Graz, Austria (2009), Singapore (2010), Eindhoven, Netherlands (2013), Joao Pessoa, Brazil (2014), Hefei, China (2015) and Leipzig Germany (2016). We have also been participating in RoboCup China Open since it was launched in 2006.


5 generations NuBot robots


The NuBot robots have been employed not only for RoboCup, but also for other research as an ideal test bed more than robot soccer. As a result, we have published more than 70 journal papers and conference papers. For more detail please see the publication list. Our current research mainly focuses on multi-robot coordination, robust robot vision and formation control.


The following items are our team description papers (TDPs) which illustrates our research progress over the past years.
