GRASP Special Seminar – Geoffrey Barrows, Founder of Centeye, “Bio-Inspired Vision for Micro Air Vehicles”

April 13, 2012 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Flying insects
have long been accepted as a good
model for developing vision systems for micro air vehicles. In
this talk, I
will relate my own experiences implementing bio-inspired vision
and flight
control to provide small scale navigation e.g. obstacle
avoidance and stability
to air vehicles of this size. This talk will emphasize practical
learned that the audience should be able to take away and apply
to their own
research. These lessons include the benefits of using a
“vertically integrated”
approach, the pitfalls of using more pixels or features than
what is needed for
a task, and that one does not necessarily need to know the 6DOF
Cartesian state
of an air vehicle in order to control it.
