For a general overview about perception in robotics students are encouraged to look at the following paper :

  • Vision for Robotics, Markus Vincze and Danica Kragic in Foundations and Trends in Robotics Vol. 1, No. 1 (2010) 1–78 [pdf]
Object Detecion and recogniotion
  • Richard Szeliski: Computer Vision:Algorithms and Applications, Chapter 14 (link),
  • Collet Object Recognition and Full Pose Registration from a Single Image for Robotic Manipulation
Hough Transform, RANSAC, ICP
  • Wikipedia is normally a great place for geting familiar with these algorithms
  • Papzov et.el. An Efficient RANSAC for 3D Object Recognition in Noisy and Occluded Scenes
  • Find more applications of these algorithms in robotics e.g.:
Tracking and Recognizing Humans
  • Forsyth Computational Studies of Human Motion: Part 1, Tracking and Motion Synthesis(pdf)
  • Pons-Moll Metric Regression Forests for Human Pose Estimation( pdf)
