The navigation task for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), such as quadrotors, in an indoor environment becomes challenging as the global positioning system (GPS) and the magnetometer may provide inaccurate aiding measurements and the signals may get jammed. The navigation system design in this...
This thesis applied a combination of machine learning and computer vision to an engineering research project, using a two-armed Baxter robot hardware platform. The challenge was estimating the robot arm’s joint angles from monocular camera images. After evaluating several methods from...
Vision-assisted behavior-based construction safety: Integrating computer vision and natural language processingDownload
Background: Construction sites can be hazardous places. Behavior-based safety is a method to optimize workers’ behaviors and improve site safety. Previous behavior-based safety has been criticized for their low efficiency because of manual observation. The community has conducted enormous studies...
Vision-based algorithms designed to detect and track UAVs from an onboard moving platform have been the focus of active and extensive research over the last decade, and dozens of algorithms have been tested, compared and optimized. However, the existing approaches tend to rely on specific...
Construction sites are the place where personnel and equipment work closely. In such workplaces, human movement dynamically adapts to the surrounding circumstances which are congested and continually changing. Acquisition of worker trajectories and measurement of physical value of workplaces,...
This dissertation examines four Indigenous novels published in Canada and the United States between 1990 and 2000. Building upon Indigenous and non-Indigenous theories of literary nationalism, cosmopolitanism, and globalization, this project focuses on narrative articulations of Indigenous...
