报告题目：Localization and Control in GPS Denied Environment
内容简介：The capability of localization is of great importance for many applications such as Internet of Things and operation of unmanned systems. GPS has been widely used for positioning and navigation. However, in indoor environments and many outdoor environments such as urban canon and forest, GPS may not be available or unreliable. Hence, it has been a lot of interest in developing technologies and algorithms for localization in such environments. In this talk, we shall discuss some recent research on this topic. We shall discuss localization leveraging on various technologies including WiFi, UWB and vision. In particular, we shall introduce recently developed distance based cooperative localization including consensus based approach and graph optimization based approach, leveraging on UWB technologies. We shall also discuss simultaneous relative localization and formation control of multi-robot systems, and demonstrate their applications in unmanned ground and aerial vehicles.
