Visual Navigation for Flying Robots

Note for TUM students: Unfortunately, we cannot offer this course any more. See our current courses for alternatives.

Online Resources


In recent years, flying robots such as autonomous quadrocopters have gained increased interest in robotics and computer vision research. For navigating safely, these robots need the ability to localize themselves autonomously using their onboard sensors. Potential applications of such systems include the automatic 3D reconstruction of buildings, inspection and simple maintenance tasks, surveillance of public places as well as in search and rescue systems.
