ADVANCES IN BlOROBOTIC VlSlON
The Australian National University Biorobotic Vision Group has described its innovative researches and developments in the field of robotic vision. The group has been researching the principles by which insects see, control flights and navigate, in order to transfer their findings to their work in robotic vision. They believe this work will help them in their aim to devise algorithms for machine vision and autonomous, visually guided robots. In particular, this work is in reference to using optic flow to measure image motion.
The researchers have already successfully developed a hover controller that can
hover over an arbitary set of landmarks with no manual intervention.They have also designed an autonomous helicopter that will hover and fly without using GPS.
