Special Issue Introduction

Autonomous robots have developed rapidly recently and are used for somespecific scenarios such as urban search and rescue, home cleaning, etc. The expansion of robot application scope requires that the functions of robots are no longer limited to mechanized or programmed operation, narrow human-computer interaction, etc. It is expected that intelligent robots can realize autonomous working by perceiving the surrounding environment, and realize the interaction between robot, human, and environment. Thus, how to make robots understand the scenes like people has become a hot research topic. Scene understanding for autonomous robots is an active research field, and we welcome the latest developments in this special issue, such as object detection, semantic segmentation, 3D reconstruction, and holistic reasoning for scene understanding. Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
● Object detection
● Scene classification
● 3D reconstruction
● Semantic segmentation
● Pose estimation
● Layout estimation
● Affordance prediction
● Saliency prediction
● Holistic reasoning for scene understanding
● Data fusion for scene understanding
