The UNIZG-FER team brings together people from two research groups: Autonomous Mobile Robotics (AMOR) and Laboratory for Robotics and Intelligent Control Systems (LARICS), both from the Department of Control and Computer Engineering.
Autonomous Mobile Robotics (AMOR) group (http://act.rasip.fer.hr/groups_amor.php): AMOR group major activities include: Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM), Detection and Tracking of Moving Objects (DATMO) and Motion Planning and Control (MPAC).
Laboratory for Robotics and Intelligent Control Systems (LARICS) (http://larics.rasip.fer.hr):LARICS main research interests are, but are not limited to, advanced control systems design, intelligent control systems, multi-agent systems and formation control in mobile robotics (ground and aerial), trust based consensus control, unmanned aerial vehicles design and control, aerial manipulation and robust control.
Our motivation for EUROC Challenge participation is to improve and test our algorithms for path planning, SLAM, sensor fusion and controller robustness.
- Mobile robotics, path planning, coverage planning, obstacle avoidance and environment exploration.
- Estimation and control of the mobile robots in unstructured environments, especially vision-based simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM)
- Fault tolerant UAV, sensor stabilization system, autonomous navigation using vision and IMU only, with emphasis on scale estimation from monocular camera
- Modelling and control of unmanned aerial vehicles, adaptive and optimal control, reinforcement learning, robustness.
- Flight stability of aerial redundant manipulators, and human robot interfaces crucial for the successful completion of aerial manipulation missions.
Our team members bring together the experience from both industry and research projects, covering the skills required to cope with the challenge (sensing, motion planning, task planning, grasp planning, programming, communication).
