As part of a Google Summer Of Code (GSOC). I have the privilege to Mentor a talented PhD Student of the Nanyang Technological University of Singapore, named Thien Nguyen.
Since the beginning of this project , Thien has delivered a series of Labs to serve not only as milestones for the project but also a step-by-step guideline for anyone who wishes to learn about using the power of computer vision for autonomous robot to follow. The…Continue
Ahhh... Winter in Canada ...
While the kids play hockey outside with sticks and a puck , I play inside with sticks and a POC !!
A few month ago I started experimenting with the Avoidance Library:…

On-demand aviation has the potential to radically improve urban mobility, giving people back time lost in their daily commutes. Uber is close to the commute pain that citizens in cities around the world feel. We view helping to solve this problem as core to our mission and…Continue
One of the world’s first automated inspections by an intelligent drone with deep learning capabilities was demonstrated at the GPU Technology Conference Europe today by Aerialtronics, a Dutch manufacturer of technologically advanced drones, Neurala, a pioneer in deep learning software, and NVIDIA®, the world leader in…Continue
As a leader in 4G LTE technology, Qualcomm and its engineers did not hesitate to jump at the opportunity to test LTE-controlled drones in real-world scenarios. We were eager to analyze how, and if drones could…Continue
Combined with Intel’s Existing Assets, Movidius Technology – for New Devices Like Drones, Robots, Virtual Reality Headsets and More – Positions Intel to Lead in Providing Computer Vision and Deep Learning Solutions from the Device to the Cloud
I finally received my Raspberry Pi Zero, just in time to get into the DIY challenge of building a smart drone with the Pi Zero and APM under 100$. I called this project: MINI-Zee
How this can be done?
Well first of all, thanks to…Continue
ADAS , will this be the next generation of autopilot ?
The next step toward fully autonomous UAV systems is based on acquiring and processing in real-time, information from visual (and/or other spectrums) surrounding space around the vehicle, and sending steering commands to the flight control unit so that navigating across an…Continue
