Tuesday, April 5 • 4:20pm - 5:10pm
Project Artemis - Visual Navigation for Flying Robots - Kabir Mohammed, Uasys

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

With all the talk of integrating drones into civilian airspace, there is need for better safety and GPS-agnostic navigation methods - visual navigation and obstacle avoidance is paramount to integrating drones (micro-aerial-vehicles, MAVs) into our cities and elsewhere, because external navigation aids cannot be relied on in every situation, and neither can pilot experience. In this presentation, Mohammed Kabir will outline the current situation in the industry, discuss the challenges of a real-world implementation of the proposition, and finally demonstrate how an open-source aerial robot can be designed from ground up to meet this challenge.The implementation part of the talk will focus on visual navigation, mapping, obstacle avoidance and high-definition video streaming.

Co-founder and Technical Lead, UASys
I'm Kabir, a 18 year old student from India. I've worked with various open-source flight-control projects since 2007. I'm currently an active developer for PX4 Pro Autopilot project. I'm currently working on Artemis, my micro-aerial-vehicle research project on making autonomous obstacle avoidance and GPS-denied navigation possible for small multi-rotor craft. Our software stack is freely available on GitHub for anyone to replicate a similar... Read More →
