Interesting
 
In this work, which will be presented at ICRA'15, we propose a system to detect safe landing spots and execute autonomous quadrotor landing. The system works by generating a robocentric, probabilistic 2D elevation map. The mapping system uses only a single downlooking camera and one core of the on-board smartphone processor. The low processing requirements allow us to run the system continuously on-board the quadrotor to enable fast and safe landing in case of emergencies.

More details are given in our paper:

"Continuous On-Board Monocular-Vision-based Elevation Mapping Applied to Autonomous Landing of Micro Aerial Vehicles" by C. Forster, M. Faessler, F. Fontana, M. Werlberger, D. Scaramuzza.

The paper can be found here: http://rpg.ifi.uzh.ch/docs/ICRA15_Forster.pdf

You can find a detailed description of the hardware and software used on-board our qadrotor platform in this publication: http://rpg.ifi.uzh.ch/docs/JFR15_Faessler.pdf

Really nice discussion of Human perception system and the wackiness of our neural processing...

RoomScanner 9.5 published!   Now with ADF and OBJ file save.
(should be live in play store in a couple of hours)
The Local copy of the full resolution scan is now default format of OBJ so you can load it into Meshlab and work with it!   Special Thanks to +Nick Palmer for the guidance (and code samples) for OBJ support!

Scan limit now defaults to 50 scans, with a cap of 200.
Scanner that assembles a Point Cloud of your environment as you sweep acros...

Great alternate to punch on grand. Great local ingredients and respectable crust baked in a coal fired oven. Kid friendly and nice tap selection at the same time.

Fantastic experience. Fantastic service. Fantastic cuts. Fantastic deal. I've been going there since they opened the W.Saint Paul store, and I will keep going there. They cut my hair, and put a smile on face every time. Great all around experience. They also cut my 3 year old son's hair, and put a smile on his face every time. Staff is consistently great with kids and grownups. Best haircut experience in the Twin Cities.

Fantastic date night Foodie dinner. We loved it. Order many small plates and share an entree to save room for desert. We will be back with friends!
