IROS 2015 paper accepted!

Valentin Peretroukhin will present his work on predictive noise modelling for visual-inertial navigation at IROS 2015 in Hamburg, Germany. This research enables learning of robust sensor noise models – making it easier to build consistent estimators. Congratulations Valentin!

FSR 2015 paper accepted!

Lee Clement’s work on a monocular Visual Teach and Repeat (VT&R) pipeline for mobile robots will be presented at the FSR 2015 conference in Toronto in June. The paper demonstrates that basic information about camera placement can be employed in a monocular VT&R system to enable kilometre-scale route repetition with performance nearly identical to that of stereo VT&R. Congratulations Lee!
