Software

asr_ros_pkgs is an open source framework in which the core findings of my Ph.D. research at the Chair of Prof. Dr.-Ing. R. Dillmann are realized. It provides a software architecture controlling a mobile robot and is based on the Robot Operating System (ROS). Research contributions which we integrated in it are designed as standalone libraries with ROS wrappers.

asr_ros_pkgs implements 'Active Scene Recognition' - an approach for mobile robots to recognize scenes in distributed and cluttered indoor environments. asr_ism implements our ISM-tree representation.

Source code for all of our contributions is available on GitHub.

An overview on our documentation can be found in the ROS Wiki.
