Abstract

In this paper, we present a method of integrating auditory and visual perception for mobile robot for RoboCup. When humanoid robots are fielded for soccer game, they need to quickly react to the environment using all possible sensory inputs. While current robots heavily depends on visual inputs, auditory inputs actually play significant role in detecting events where visual inputs are not available, such as side and behind the face direction. Sound of other players kicking the ball, and shouting of teammates are critical cues for sophisticated teamwork play, such as offside trap. This paper presents integration of auditory and visual perception for identifying sound sources and separating sounds at high accuracy using both auditory and visual inputs.
