• Program The principal goal of this tutorial is to provide an introduction to the basic principle and applications of Linear Kalman filter, Unscented Kalman filter and Particle filters to integration of GPS (Global Positioning System) with Inertial Navigation Systems and Dead Reckoning Systems. Fundamental concept on filtering technique with detailed mathematical development will be introduced, so that one can build up solid background on the basics of Kalman filter as well as general filtering theory. Considering the importance of Kalman filtering in the practicing areas of GPS/INS integration, practical applications of the Kalman filter to advanced car navigation are also presented following the basic theory. The workshop will deliver highly useful knowledge and experience for graduate students working on related research, scientists of government institutes, and field engineers being involved with practical projects. The one-day tutorial consists of three parts. In the first session, introduction and mathematical developments of the linear Kalman filter theory is scheduled. In the second session, more advanced filters such as the unscented filter and the particle filters will be discussed. In the last session, various useful aspects of GPS/DR integration will be discussed for practical applications.

• Program The principal goal of this tutorial is to provide an introduction to the basic principle and applications of linear and nonlinear model predictive control. The first half of the tutorial will present the traditional approach of employing on-line optimization. Stability and optimality in closed loop will be discussed. Methods to speed up the on-line optimization for problems requiring fast sampling rates will be discussed. The second half of the tutorial will present an explicit MPC approach in which multi-parametric programming is used to parameterize the MPC control law explicitly offline. The main advantage of explicit MPC is that the on-line optimization is replaced by a table lookup, which can be considerably faster. Several applications of explicit MPC will be presented.

10:30 ~ 12:00: Lecture 2 (Nonlinear MPC)
13:30 ~ 15:00: Lecture 3 (Explicit MPC Part I)

• Program The operational space control framework provides a means to direct task space control of the robot by fully utilizing the robot dynamics without using inverse kinematics. The operational space or task space is typically defined to be the position and orientation of the end-effector. More generally, it can be defined to be the position and orientation of any link of the robot or any other quantities that can be mathematically described such as the center of the mass of the system. Understanding of the operational space control framework gives you not only the knowledge about task-oriented control framework but also the insight about the robot dynamics. The lecture will first go over the basic robotics material - kinematics and joint space dynamics. Then, the operational space (task space) dynamics and control will be presented. Finally, the task-posture decomposition approach using task redundancy and hybrid position-force control will be discussed.

08:30 ~ 10:10: Lecture 1 (Kinematics and dynamics in operational space)

• Program Robot vision gives robots the ability to perceive the external world in order to perform tasks such as navigation, visual tracking, object detection and recognition. Most robot vision algorithms run in four steps ? image acquisition, low-level image processing, mid-level image matching, and high-level information extraction. This tutorial introduces the basic principles of robot vision and the state-of-the-art technologies including some of the real-world applications. Specifically, the topics will include the geometric/photometric camera calibration, image features and extractions, feature matching and recognition, and 3-D reconstruction. For 3D reconstruction of static and dynamic scenes, we introduce the details of several robust robot vision methods ranging from the image enhancement to the design of novel camera systems. We also present a unified framework for sensor fusion: (i) “camera + depth” fusion camera systems, (ii) a fast bundle adjustment based approach for large-scale dataset, (iii) a novel coded-light photometric stereo for modeling 3-D dynamic scenes. This new framework allows boosting the advantages of two sensor systems and complements the weakness of the two. As an important application of robot vision, we demonstrate the robustness of the methods by automatically reconstructing a large-scale environment, such as KAIST campus.

13:30 ~ 15:00: Lecture 1 (Introduction to robot vision systems)
15:30 ~ 17:00: Lecture 2 (Vision-based localization and 3D mapping)
