AbstractA method for identifying objects by an autonomous robot. Images of a work environment are captured by an image sensor positioned on the autonomous robot. An object dictionary containing image data regarding a set of objects is preloaded into the system. Captured images are transmitted to an image processor that processes the images to generate feature vector and identify objects within the images by comparison to objects in the object dictionary. Upon identifying an object in an image as an object from the object dictionary, the system executes a set of preprogrammed responses, which may include altering a movement path to avoid colliding with or driving over the object.
