Alumni Webinar Series – Perception and Localization of Intelligent Unmanned Systems

Unmanned systems have applications in many areas such as surveillance, transport, structure   inspection,   logistics,   etc.   Perception   and   localization   are   essential capabilities  of  unmanned  systems.  There  have been  a  lot  of  studies  on  perception and  localization  based  on  various sensors such  as camera  and  LiDAR.  Each  type  of sensor  has  its  pros  and cons.  Different  application  scenario  will  require  different sensors  and  there  is  no  one-size-fits-all  solution.  To  achieve  accurate  and  reliable localization  in  complex  environments,  heterogeneous  sensor  fusion  has  been  a recent  trend  and  attracted  significant  interest.  In  this  talk,  we  shall  present  some recent   development   and   discuss   possible future   directions   of   the   area.   The applications  of  unmanned  systems  in  structure  inspection  and  logistics  will  be demonstrated.
