Dense Reconstruction Dataset

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2MSWTKBMNeE   In practice, we found dense reconstructions are the most complete and highest quality (with our mobile robotics platform) when fusing data from multiple Velodyne, SICK LMS- 151, and stereo cameras using our own datasets. We are releasing such a dataset to provide a realistic mobile-robotics platform with a variety of sensors—a [...]

Knowing When We Don’t Know: Introspective Classification for Mission-Critical Decision Making

Classification precision and recall have been widely adopted by roboticists as canonical metrics to quantify the performance of learning algorithms. This paper advocates that for robotics applications, which often involve mission-critical decision making, good performance according to these standard metrics is desirable but insufficient to appropriately characterise system performance. We introduce and motivate the importance [...]
