Mapping and Auto Retrieval for Micro Air Vehicles (MAV) using RGBD Visual Odometry

These videos show work we been doing with our partners at Blue Bear for onboard visual mapping for MAVs. These are based on visual odometry mapping for working over large areas and build maps onboard the MAV using an asus xtion-pro RGBD camera mounted on the vehicle. One of the videos show autoretrieval of the vehicle where a human pilot first flies the vehicle through the space and then the map is used for relocalisation using the map built on the way back. The other video is on a nuclear reactor installation. These are works we been doing for a while on uses of our methods for industrial inspection.
