We would like to share the following result on aerial robotic navigation through obscurants. The test took place in a smoke-filled machine-shop environment.
This is to share results on radiation source localization in GPS-denied environments using autonomous aerial robots that estimate the nuclear (Cs-137 in the experiments) source location and intensity, while simultaneously planning for informative measurements. Smart selection of measurement points is critical as the robot has to dwell for…Continue

In these two videos you will see some recent results on autonomous exploration of tunnels in visually-degraded (dark) conditions. Both localization and mapping, as well as path planning and control are handled completely autonomously. …Continue
Dear community members,
During this ICRA we presented our work on "Uncertainty-aware Receding Horizon Exploration and Mapping using Aerial Robots".
This work is now accompanied with an open sourced ROS toolbox available at:…Continue
Dear community members,
This is very preliminary work on aerial robotic radiation detection in real-time and in a GPS-denied manner. The robot localizes based on visual-inertial data and integrates a deferentially installed 2-radiation detectors solution to exploit their polarity characteristics. Most of the research is ahead but we…Continue

We would like to share two of our recent and ongoing results related to autonomous exploration and mapping in darkness. As opposed to approaches that rely on localization based on LiDAR systems, the videos below rely on visual-inertial localization with LEDs illuminating the scene appropriately. For the first case, visible-spectrum cameras are…Continue
We recently released this video on autonomous exploration and inspection. Have a look!
The robot employs its visual-inertial navigation system in order to localize itself in the environment and simultaneously map it and 3D reconstruct it. Based on the newly proposed "Receding Horizon Next-Best-View…Continue
Dear members of the drones community,
