I am excited to announce that we are releasing our full quadrotor control framework as open-source software based on the Robot Operating System (ROS). This control framework has been used for the past 6 years in my lab (RPG). It has served as the basis for over 500 public, live flight demonstrations and over 50 scientific publications from my lab. This framework allows you to easily control quadrotors accurately even during very agile maneuvers by compensating for rotor drag effects. It allows you to interface with state-of-the art FPV racing hardware to build and control very powerful and agile quadrotors as we did in our most recent work (check out the publications below and the project webpage). This work will also be presented at this year's IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA18), in Brisbane. You will find further information on our project webpage, including link to the code, papers, and video demonstrations: https://lnkd.in/dMaqdrv
The code is released under an MIT License. Installation instructions and details are described in the related Wiki. The framework implements control methods for accurate agile quadrotor flight by compensating for rotor drag effects as presented in our papers:

We have two open positions at the Dyson Robotics Lab at Imperial College London, led by myself and +Stefan Leutenegger and focusing on breakthrough research in 3D vision, learning-based semantic SLAM and vision-guided manipulation. We are an academic lab which works on long-term publishable research while also collaborating with Dyson on novel applications in home robotics.

The first is a Dyson Fellow position (current and recent holders of these positions include +Edward Johns, +Michael Blösch, +Ronnie Clark, +Ankur Handa, +Thomas Whelan and Akis Tsiotsios), where we are looking for a leading post-doctoral researcher in any of our areas of interest to take responsibility for part of our core research mission.

The second is a Research Engineer position, where we need someone with exceptional engineering skills in applied robotics and computer vision who will plan a key role in adding structure to our research efforts and in transferring developments to Dyson's in-house robotics team.

Please feel free to get in touch with any informal questions, or follow the links to the adverts for official details on how to apply.

KDE's applications (such as file manager, image viewer, screenshot taker, PDF viewer, etc) are quite feature-packed & good quality (they're one of the main reasons I use KDE as my OS). They've recently been updated. #KDE
This year's first major KDE Applications release is officially out!

Get excited for flexible panels and easier file management in Dolphin, KDE Connect compatibility in Gwenview, prettier Konsole, smarter Spectacle, and much more.

I found a really handy feature in KDE that's basically a super-charged Alt-Tab window switcher: If you hit the Window key plus a number, it switches to that window (sorted by windows in your current taskbar), including your taskbar icons. This makes it really easy to switch between the 5 windows I normally use all day!
