Description:
The robotics lab is building an new robot that is a humanoid torso. It consists of two robot arms mounted on a frame that is capped by a head on which a stereo camera is mounted. This project will develop computer vision software that will allow the robot to see the objects that the arms will manipulate.

The robot is controlled by two powerful PCs that control the motion of the arms and provide the computer power for computer vision algorithms and other sensors. While algorithms for stereo vision already exist, they must be adapted to suit this environment and allow us to coordinate the attention of the stereo head with the tasks being performed by the arms.
