Deep learning is a powerful tool when applied to robotics. This article discusses how OhmniLabs uses deep learning for autodocking calibration in its telepresence robot. The Ohmni robot has the capability of finding its docking station and moving to that station for recharging. Calibration between the camera image and the robot coordinates in the real world is an important step of autodocking. In order to function properly, we first have to find some keypoints of…
