From the Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Advanced Robotics (ICAR 2003), held June 30-July 3, 2003, Coimbra, Portugal.


We are interested in the real time pose estimation of a group of networked mobile robots based on exteroceptive information from their vision systems. Additionally, we are also interested in simultaneously tracking a rigid unknown object. We present a localization and object tracking approach based on statistical operators and simple graph searching algorithms. The approach was implemented in our team of five car like robots equipped with omni-directional video cameras and IEEE 802.11b wireless networking.
