AAAI-07 Semantic Robot Vision Challenge NSF
We won the First place in the Semantic Robot Vision Challenge by AAAI!

Selected objects we found are shown in the results below. We used object models with good generalization, which allowed us to be the only team to find a "general" object (an unbranded object) without the use of template matching techniques.
