Practical Course: Visual Navigation for Flying Robots (6h SWS)

In this course, you will develop and implement algorithms for the visual navigation of multicopters. This includes e.g. simultaneous localization and mapping with monocular or stereo cameras, (semi-)dense 3D reconstruction, obstacle perception and avoidance, and autonomous path planning and execution.

We will work on tasks as considered in Stage I of the EuRoC Challenge 3 for autonomous multicopters:

Further information on EuRoC, a European robotics challenge, can be found here:

The project work will be conducted in teams of up to 3 participants. During the project work, you will be provided with PC equipment. To facilitate a direct supervision of your project work, you should make use of the lab time from 9 am to 5 pm during the project work phase.
