Scratch area for the third year project in EEE on autonomous indoor quad navigation.

Papers

General

Someone should do a parse of http://www.informatik.uni-trier.de/~ley/db/conf/icra/icra2012.html (plus 2011, etc) for relevant papers, some MAV stuff there.

Plane segmentation

Real-Time Plane Segmentation using RGB-D Cameras
The PCL fast plane segmentation is based on this paper. Current plan is to reuse the integral image calculation for local normal finding.
An idea is to use DBSCAN to perform the clustering which is not that well described in the paper.

Extra stuff: KD-tree construction with GPUs - Although we should try to just use kd trees from PCL.

SLAM

Extra stuff:

  • paper on a novel approach to the plane data association: [2]
  • These guys use something different than a EKF: a hybrid. "hybrid filter that uses an IMU-driven EKF process model with pseudo-measurements computed from Gaussian Particle Filter (GPF) laser measurement updates" [3]

EKF's

Extra stuff: use quaternions for rotation state

Unfiltered

[http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/stamp/stamp.jsp?tp=&arnumber=5980095 Autonomous Obstacle Avoidance and Maneuvering on a Vision-Guided MAV Using On-Board Processing] - seems very relevant at a glance, will revisit later

Visual Studio tips

Use PCL 1.6 from the web, update cmakelists to https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/48184712/CMakeLists.txt ,and install drivers from https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/48184712/V1049_0430.iso
