Abstract

A method for identifying objects for autonomous robots, including: capturing, with an image sensor disposed on an autonomous robot, images of a workspace, wherein a field of view of the image sensor captures at least an area in front of the autonomous robot; obtaining, with a processing unit disposed on the autonomous robot, the images; generating, with the processing unit, a feature vector from the images; comparing, with the processing unit, at least one object captured in the images to objects in an object dictionary; identifying, with the processing unit, a class to which the at least one object belongs; and executing, with the autonomous robot, instructions based on the class of the at least one object identified.
