Global positioning in urban environment
We proposed a method for improving GPS position calculation in an urban scenario. The method works by identifying non line of sight satellites w.r.t. a GPS antenna using a 3D map of the environment around the measurement point. The signals from the hidden satellites are excluded in the calculation to achieve significant improvements in position estimation.
We tried a method to obtain the most optimal structure of a tunnel by geometric processing: (1) Acquire a set of partial structures by static scanning, and align them by 3D matching using edge feature (2) Fix the absolute position of the data at both ends of the tunnel by GPS and align the rest data again.
We propose a method to detect emergency telephone indicators in a tunnel environment by using infrared cameras for self-positioning. The proposed method makes use of both appearance and motion information of the target objects.

Teleoperation of humanoid robot by task model
We propose a method to generate robot motions for vision-based teleoperation systems. Recognition and transmission of human motions are performed by the task model. The task model can simultaneously solve the issues of the structural differences between the human and the humanoid robot and time delays.
