  • Valencia, Rafael; Valls Miro, Jaime; Dissanayake, Gamini; Andrade-Cetto, Juan (IEEE, 2012)
    We present an active exploration strategy that complements Pose SLAM and optimal navigation in Pose SLAM. The method evaluates the utility of exploratory and place revisiting sequences and chooses the one that minimizes ...
  • Valls Miro, Jaime; Taha, Tarek; Wang, Dalong; Dissanayake, Gamini (Indescience Publishers, 2008)
    A novel method which combines an optimised global path planner with a real-time sensor-based collision avoidance mechanism to accommodate for dynamic changes in the environment (e.g., people) is presented. The basic concept ...
  • Valls Miro, Jaime; Dissanayake, Gamini (ACM, 2010)
    A novel mechanism able to produce increasingly stable paths for mobile robotic agents travelling over uneven terrain is proposed in this paper. In doing so, cognitive agents can focus on higher-level goal planning, with ...
  • Pedraza, Luis; Dissanayake, Gamini; Valls Miro, Jaime; Rodriguez-Losada, Diego; Matia, Fernando (MIT Press, 2007)
    This paper presents BS-SLAM, a simultaneous localization and mapping algorithm for use in unstructured environments that is effective regardless of whether features correspond to simple geometric primitives such as points ...
  • Ellekilde, Lars; Huang, Shoudong; Valls Miro, Jaime; Dissanayake, Gamini (Wiley, 2007)
    The main contribution of this paper is a new simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) algorithm for building dense three-dimensional maps using information acquired from a range imager and a conventional camera, for ...
  • Valls Miro, Jaime; Black, Ross; Andonovski, Bojan; Dissanayake, Gamini (IEEE, 2013)
    This paper describes the outcomes of a clinical study to assess the validity of a stand-alone sensor package and algorithms to aid the assessment by an occupational therapist (OT) whether a person has the capacity to safely ...
  • Patel, Miteshkumar; Valls Miro, Jaime; Dissanayake, Gamini (Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg, 2010)
    Detection of individuals intentions and actions from a stream of human behaviour is an open problem. Yet for robotic agents to be truly perceived as human-friendly entities they need to respond naturally to the physical ...
  • Taha, Tarek; Valls Miro, Jaime; Liu, Dikai (IEEE, 2006)
    This paper presents a one step smooth and efficient path planning algorithm for navigating a large robotic platform in known cluttered environments. The proposed strategy, based on the generation of a novel search space, ...
  • Valls Miro, Jaime; Taha, Tarek; Wang, Dalong; Dissanayake, Gamini; Liu, Dikai (University of Technology, Sydney, 2007)
  • Ghaffari Jadidi, Maani; Valls Miro, Jaime; Valencia, Rafael; Andrade-Cetto, Juan; Dissanayake, Gamini (Australian Robtocis and Automation Association, 2013)
    Exploration using an Information-Based Reaction-Diffusion Process
  • Pedraza, Luis; Rodriguez-Losada, Diego; Matia, Fernando; Dissanayake, Gamini; Valls Miro, Jaime (IEEE, 2009)
    This paper describes a simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) algorithm for use in unstructured environments that is effective regardless of the geometric complexity of the environment. Features are described using ...
  • Ellekilde, Lars; Valls Miro, Jaime; Dissanayake, Gamini (IET, 2006)
  • Zhou, Weizhen; Valls Miro, Jaime; Dissanayake, Gamini (IEEE, 2008)
    This paper presents a novel solution for building three-dimensional dense maps in unknown and unstructured environment with reduced computational costs. This is achieved by giving the robot the dasiaintelligencepsila to ...
  • Zhou, Weizhen; Valls Miro, Jaime; Dissanayake, Gamini (IEEE-Inst Electrical Electronics Engineers Inc, 2008)
    This paper presents a novel vision-based sensory package and an information-efficient simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) algorithm. Together, we offer a solution for building 3-D dense map in an unknown and ...
  • Zhou, Weizhen; Valls Miro, Jaime; Dissanayake, Gamini (IEEE, 2007)
    This paper presents a strategy for increasing the efficiency of simultaneous localisation and mapping (SLAM) in unknown and unstructured environments using a vision-based sensory package. Traditional feature-based SLAM, ...
  • Taha, Tarek; Valls Miro, Jaime; Dissanayake, Gamini (Technical Report 470, University of Hertfordshire, 2008)
    This paper presents an intelligent decision-making agent to assist wheelchair users in their daily navigation activities. The system has the ability to predict the users? intended destination at a larger scale, that of a ...
  • Valls Miro, Jaime; Dumonteil, Gaultier; Beck, Christoph; Dissanayake, Gamini (IEEE, 2010)
    A generic methodology to plan increasingly stable paths for mobile platforms travelling over uneven terrain is proposed in this paper. This is accomplished by extending the Fast Marching level-set method of propagating ...
  • Patel, Miteshkumar; Ek, Carl; Kyriazis, Nikolas; Argyros, Antonis; Valls Miro, Jaime; Kragic, Danica (IEEE, 2013)
    In this paper we use a Hierarchical Hidden Markov Model (HHMM) to represent and learn complex activities/task performed by humans/robots in everyday life. Action primitives are used as a grammar to represent complex ...
  • Valls Miro, Jaime; White, A. (Elsevier, 2002)
    A practical application of the modelling and validation of an open-chain industrial manipulator is presented in this paper. Both mechanical and electrical equations of motion were used to provide a complete model description. ...
  • Wijerathna, Buddhi; Vidal Calleja, Teresa; Kodagoda, Sarath; Zhang, Qiang; Valls Miro, Jaime (SPIE, 2013)
    Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) technology has been used in non-destructive testing for more than three decades. There have been several publications in detecting and sizing defects on metal pipes using machine learning ...
