My two MOOCs are running again.  We start off again with robotics on August 7 and Robotic Vision on October 19.  All welcome and pass on the news.  Over 20,000 students in the first round earlier this year.  If you teach, consider using them as aid to classroom teaching.
Two MOOCs coming this year, based on Robotics, Vision & Control: ✓6 weeks each. ✓2 x 1 hour lectures per week, with formative quizzes to consolidate knowledge. ✓Weekly assessment for grades. ✓Weekly programming assignments in MATLAB (autograded). ✓Delivered via the familiar Open edX ...

it was nice learning from you sir in your previous MOOCs.
Does QUT offer any course in robotics for masters?

Massive "workshop" on Robotic Vision, co-organised with Greg Hager and +Tom Drummond .  We packed half a ball room.  Great talks by +Pieter Abbeel +Dieter Fox +Tim Barfoot +Michael Milford and John Leonard.  Then great conversation with the panel and the audience.  We'll post slides and notes shortly at http://tiny.cc/roboticvisionws

I'm looking for some input for the upcoming second edition of my book  "Robotics, Vision & Control", specifically related to the toolbox software it's based on.

The first edition was based on a number of open-source toolboxes that I maintain: they are free but not perfect.  MATLAB has a growing number of relevant toolboxes for robotics (RST), image processing (IPT) and computer vision (CVST): they are not free, they work with modern versions of MATLAB, but they are supported products.  They also do not cover the full set of functionality described by the book.

Should I base the book on my open source toolboxes or go with supported and paid for MATLAB toolboxes?

I think open source toolboxes are a better option, especially considering the fact that paid MATLAB toolboxes can get quite unaffordable for students.

I'm sceptical from a payload and endurance perspective...
US-based organisation, BioCarbon Engineering , has announced that it will begin planting one billion trees per year using drone technology, in an effort to combat the massive levels of deforestation that have affected many of the world’s jungles,...

Professor,Don't you things would become better if we have a rover as well as a drone working in tandem with each other?. Like, the rover would plough holes deep enough for seeds to penetrate and drone would dispatch the seeds all over.

Here's a paper just published that talks about the challenges of doing mobile robotics research in a university setting, how do we deal with the risk, health, safety concerns of the organisation while still being able to do our research.  This seems to me an important topic that we should talk about more than we do. This is also our first foray into open-access publications, and I hope it kicks off some conversation and debate.
This paper is not about the details of yet another robot control system, but rather the issues surrounding real-world robotic implementation. It is a fact that in order to realize a future where robots coexist with people in everyday places, we have ...

Check out Don's MATLAB toolbox for light field image processing.
 
I'm starting up a community for the Light Field Toolbox for MATLAB.  Feel free to share questions, projects, feature ideas, bugs and cool light field-related news.

A fun proposal from our lab.  It was fun to help out with some of the drop tests at the beach

Part of our push to get robotics and computer vision to talk to each other. Submit a paper to our workshop, and also see what you can do with this new dataset.
 
ICRA & CVPR Workshops on Visual Place Recognition in Changing Environments (VPRiCE) -- Extended Deadline.

We extended the deadline for our workshops at ICRA and CVPR. Contributions can be submitted until May 11. We also accept contributions for the VPRiCE challenge (http://tinyurl.com/vprice-challenge) any time.

The workshops at the two robotics and computer vision conferences will discuss how place recognition can be performed in challenging conditions when the visual appearance of scenes and places changes dramatically due to daytime, weather, season or structural changes. They are organized by +Peter Corke +Michael Milford +Torsten Sattler and myself.

I am also very much looking forward to the invited talks given by +Paul Newman +Josef Sivic and +David Cox, all very renowned researchers in the field.

More information can be found on the workshop websites: http://tinyurl.com/vprice-icra15 and http://tinyurl.com/vprice-cvpr15
