In robot teleoperation, operators greatly benefit from free viewpoint images of the environment around the robots. In this paper, a novel free view point image generation method is proposed. We use multiple cameras and a laser rangefinder mounted on a robot, and generate images with the assumption that walls are perpendicular to the floor surface. Experimental results show that our system can generate free viewpoint images in real time.





I am very honored to receive this award. I am most grateful to my supervisors and co-authors for giving me a lot of advice on this research. Our research group intends to continue to develop the system.
