Service robots deployed in domestic environments generally need the capability to deal with articulated objects such as doors and drawers in order to fulfill certain mobile manipulation tasks. This however, requires, that the robots are able to perceive the articulation models of such objects. In this paper, we present an approach for detecting, tracking, and learning articulation models for cabinet doors and drawers without using artificial markers. Our approach uses a highly efficient and sampling-based approach to rectangle detection in depth images obtained from a self-developed active stereo system. The robot can use the generative models learned for the articulated objects to estimate their articulation type, their current configuration, and to make predictions about possible configurations not observed before. We present experiments carried out on real data obtained from our active stereo system. The results demonstrate that our technique is able to learn accurate articulation models. We furthermore provide a detailed error analysis based on ground truth data obtained in a motion capturing studio.
