Applications, Architectures and Systems Integration
Education in Image Processing or Machine Vision
Autonomous quadrotors will soon play a major role in search-and-rescue and remote-inspection missions, where a fast response is crucial. Quadrotors have the potential to navigate quickly through unstructured environments, enter and exit buildings through narrow gaps, and fly through collapsed buildings. However, their speed and maneuverability are still far from those of birds and human pilots. Human pilots take years to learn the skills to navigate drones. Autonomous, vision-based agile navigation through unknown, indoor environments poses a number of challenges for robotics research in terms of perception, state estimation, planning, and control. In this talk, I will show how the combination of both model-based and machine learning methods united with the power of new, low-latency sensors, such as event-based cameras, allow drones to achieve unprecedented speed and robustness by relying solely on the use of passive cameras, inertial sensors, and onboard computing.
Benazouz Bradaï received his PhD degree in multisensor fusion in 2007 from Haute Alsace University in France. From 2007 to 2011, he was Algorithm Engineer and Expert for ADAS functions including Lighting Automation, Traffic Signs/lights recognition by camera and multi sensor fusion. Since 2011, he has been working on Automated Driving Innovation developments as Senior Expert and Innovation Platform Manager. His main research interest is Automated Driving with several scientific contributions in multi-sensors fusion, precise localization and mapping and Automated Driving Functional/SW architecture. He is a member of various professional associations including ADASIS Forum, SAE and SIA in France .
