Bioinspired Autonomous Navigation

The purpose is to investigate how we can use animal models from biology to construct methods, algorithms and systems for real- time autonomous navigation, map making and localization. The methods will primarily be based on image data and specifically target the hard, but important, case of low light levels, giving low signal-to-noise ratios in the data. There are a number of industrial areas where navigation has become increasingly relevant. In the automotive industry several manufacturers already have released cars with self-driving features Mobile phones and drones come equipped with cameras and additional sensors, with potential for consumer applications such as navigation, wayfinding and augmented reality.
