• A computational theory of human perceptual mapping

      Yeap, WK (Cognitive Science Society, 2011)
      This paper presents a new computational theory of how humans integrate successive views to form a perceptual map. Traditionally, this problem has been thought of as a straightforward integration problem whereby position ...
    • How Albot0 finds its way home: a novel approach to cognitive mapping using robots

      Yeap, WK (Wiley-Blackwell, 2011)
      Much of what we know about cognitive mapping comes from observing how biological agents behave in their physical environments, and several of these ideas were implemented on robots, imitating such a process. In this paper ...
    • Mapping and localisation with sparse range data

      Schmidt, J; Wong, CK; Yeap, WK (AUT University, 2006)
      We present an approach for indoor mapping and localization with a mobile robot using sparse range data, without the need for solving the SLAM problem. The paper consists of two main parts. First, a split and merge based ...
    • On two desiderata for creativity support tools

      Yeap, WK; Opas, T; Mahyar, N (Department of Informatics Engineering, University of Coimbra, 2010)
      This paper discusses two important desiderata for developing creativity support tools, namely ideation and empowerment. We then use them to guide us in designing a new individual creativity support tool codenamed Creative-Pad. ...
    • Our next generation of robotics researchers? Teaching robotics at primary school level

      Wong, CK; Yeap, WK; Schmidt, J (AUT University, 2009)
      In this paper, we present our experience in designing and teaching of our first robotics course for students at primary school level. The course was carried out over a comparatively short period of time, namely 6 weeks, 2 ...
    • Towards a discourse coherent structure

      Nand, P; Yeap, WK (INSTICC publications, 2010)
      In this paper we argue that coherence relations between discourse units are ultimately based on mentioned discourse entities embedded in the units participating in the relation. Coherence relations as discussed in most ...
    • Using a mobile robot for cognitive mapping

      Wong, CK; Schmidt, J; Yeap, WK (International Joint Conferences on Artificial Intelligence, 2007)
      When animals (including humans) first explore a new environment, what they remember is fragmentary knowledge about the places visited. Yet, they have to use such fragmentary knowledge to find their way home. Humans naturally ...
