lecture: Eyes for Robots

Adventures in vision based navigation for beginners


Sensing the world and potential obstacles, becomes a crucial aspect of every robot, autonomous car and drone. Most of the time there is no existing map data available so these systems must be able to localize and map the environment on the go.
Although regular GPS technology provides initial localization, its accuracy alone is insufficient to operate autonomous systems only on GPS. Furthermore a system needs to be able to localize itself in an environment with limited to no GPS signal (Indoors/Urban environments).
This session will cover the basics of vision based navigation and how it works, different sensor types and their strengths and limitations.
