Object-Driven Active Mapping for More Accurate Object Pose Estimation and Robotic Grasping

by   Yanmin Wu, et al.

This paper presents the first active object mapping framework for complex robotic grasping tasks. The framework is built on an object SLAM system integrated with a simultaneous multi-object pose estimation process. Aiming to reduce the observation uncertainty on target objects and increase their pose estimation accuracy, we also design an object-driven exploration strategy to guide the object mapping process. By combining the mapping module and the exploration strategy, an accurate object map that is compatible with robotic grasping can be generated. Quantitative evaluations also show that the proposed framework has a very high mapping accuracy. Manipulation experiments, including object grasping, object placement, and the augmented reality, significantly demonstrate the effectiveness and advantages of our proposed framework.
