Analysis of undersea fish videos
The Fish4knowledge project investigated: information abstraction and storage methods for analyzing undersea video data (from 10E+15 pixels to 10E+12 units of information), machine and human vocabularies for detecting & describing fish, flexible process architectures to process the data and scientific queries and effective specialised user query interfaces. A combination of computer vision, database storage, workflow and human computer interaction methods were used to achieve this. The project used live video feeds from 10 underwater cameras as a testbed for investigating more generally applicable methods for capture, storage, analysis and querying of multiple video streams. We collated a public database from 3 years containing video summaries of the observed fish and associated descriptors. Expert web-based interfaces were developed for use by marine researchers, allowing unprecedented access to live and previously stored videos, or previously extracted information.

Framework for evaluation of different aspects of robotic exploration.
This project contains software for the quantitative analysis of different aspects of robotic exploration (i.e., mobile robots that autonomously explore initially unknown environments). More specifically, first, we modified the exploration package (developed by researchers at Bosch Research and Technology Center in Palo Alto, CA), by adding an exploration strategy, namely MCDM, and by introducing the possibility to change perception and decision timing, i.e., event-based or frequency-based perception/decision. Second, we developed a package that collects performance metrics during the exploration process. The project uses the infrastructure provided by ROS and some demos are included.
rp6simul is a simulator for the RP6 robot (AREXX Engineering)
The rp6simul project brings simulation software for the RP6 robot that is manufactured by AREXX engineering. Besides support for all peripherals on the robot base, the simulator also fully supports the m32 extension module, and both can be simulated either independently or simultaneously. Furthermore, a simple 2d environment can easily be created to test lighting, collision, motor speeds and so on. The simulator does not run native AVR files, but instead a thin wrapper is provided so that the AVR code can be compiled natively. Thanks to this wrapper, and a flexible Lua driver interface, the simulator emulates most of the IO registers, requiring no or minimal code modifications. rp6simul is primarily developed on Linux, but a Windows version will also be released.
