Project Name: Guiding Robot

Abstract:


        Guiding Robot systems are being designed and built with different sets of objectives over the years. An essential part of current computer research involves mobile service robots operating in close proximity with human users. This project report is about the guiding robot system designed to assist a visually impaired user to navigate around within a closed environment. The guiding system was built as an assembly of the Turtlebot with a mounted Nao, a Xtion PRO camera and a conical microphone.

The robot is trained to navigate through and access a large part of the WTM department rooms in the Informatics campus with minimum collisions. The guiding system works as a result of different components including object recognition, navigation, and speech recognition with a language model working together according to a defined behavior. The language model implemented with ConceptNet was successfully integrated with the DOCKS speech recognition framework. The object recognition was implemented with OpenCV and SURF algorithm. 

The guiding robot system was developed successfully to satisfy the intended task of guiding a user, potentially visually-impaired in any indoor environment.

Project Name: GeoAssistant

Description:


Geo assistant windows form application is an educational augmented reality application that consists of:

  1. Geo-solve: This part helps students to solve the geometric problems using augmented reality. To run the application, after opening it the camera will be opened, the student should direct the device’s camera on the problem text then direct it on the geometric shape. The camera automatically will recognize the shape and the target of the text (Area/Perimeter). The solution will be displayed on the textbook with an explanation via a 2D live text with speech.
  2. Handy Puzzle: The existence of large image datasets such as the set of photos make it possible to build powerful generic models for low-level image attributes like colour using simple histogram learning techniques. We describe the construction of colour models for skin and non-skin classes from a dataset of nearly 1 billion labeled pixels. Our results detect the colour of skin to track movements of the user’s hand.
  3. Test: This part helps the user solve different kinds of geometric problems and evaluate his/her answers.

  • Tools:

      Visual Studio 2012.

  • Programming Language Platform:

       C#.

  • Algorithms:

  1. Optimal edge-based shape detection.
  2. Automatic text detection algorithm.
  3. Text to speech.
  4. Color models with application to skin detection.
