Excited about this RSS 2020 paper with Dimos Tzoumanikas, Felix Graule, Cheryl Yan, Dhruv Shah and Marija Popovic. We propose a hybrid force and position Nonlinear Model-Predictive Controller (NMPC) for aerial manipulation showcased by a drone writing on a whiteboard. Paper: https://arxiv.org/pdf/2006.02116.pdf

The Smart Robotics Lab will be presenting two ICRA 2020 papers: Nonlinear MPC with Motor Failure Identification and Recovery forSafe and Aggressive Multicopter Flight paper | video Fast Frontier-based Information-driven Autonomous Exploration with an MAV paper | video Also, with the Dyson Robotics Lab, there are two more ICRA papers and
We are very happy to welcome Masha Popovic to the team, joining us after finishing her PhD at ETH Zurich’s ASL!
I am excited about our 3DV paper on adaptive-resolution octree-based volumetric SLAM (Emanuele Vespa, Nils Funk, Paul H. J. Kelly, and Stefan Leutenegger): in both the tracking step (ICP) as well as the map fusion, we can choose the voxel resolution adaptively to match the pixel size, whereby the representations at different scales are kept… Read more »
Sotiris, Chris and Nils have joined the Smart Robotics Lab as PhD students in October 2018. Welcome!
We participated in the Mohamed Bin Zayed International Robotics Challenge (MBZIRC) 2017 in Abu Dhabi — together with some of the most well-known robotics groups from all over the world, we were admitted to the finals. Together with members from Imperial’s Aerial Robotics Lab, we entered the Challenge 1, consisting of trying to land our… Read more »
