for fall 2015 or spring 2016. The successful candidates will develop: (1)
vision-based navigation methods for small robots and wearable robotic
assistive devices; (2) human lower extremity motion detection methods for
the control of a quadrupedal legged assistive robot; and (3) human gesture
recognition methods for human-robot interaction. These methods are based on
a RGB-D camera. Candidates with relevant computer vision knowledge are
