Humanoid Stereoscopic Vision System: A Systematic Redesign of the WPI Motor Eyes Mechanism Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
In 2014, a group of Worcester Polytechnic Institute students completed a major qualifying project (MQP) on the design of a mechanical stereoscopic vision system, named WPI Motor Eyes Mechanism. In this subsequent MQP, the original Motor Eyes system was evaluated, and the sources of error were identified through static analysis and dynamic testing. These problem areas were redesigned to create an improved Humanoid Stereoscopic Vision System that better adheres to the original design constraints. Once completed, work focused on implementing image processing technology. Cameras were installed to add facial detection functionality and further increase the capabilities of the system. The final result is a robotic platform that is able to visually locate and track a moving human face.
