Drones and V-SLAM: A Post-Doc position is available at NTU (Singapore)

Motion planning of unmanned aerial vehicles with visual-aided simultaneous
localization and mapping (V-SLAM): This project aims to realize motion
planning of unmanned aerial vehicles in priori unknown environments by
vision-based sensing. In this project, V-SLAM algorithms will be developed,
and tested during fast flights with a multi-rotor equipped with a camera,
lidar, and inertial sensors. V-SLAM will provide an instantaneous local map
of surroundings in which local motion planning of multi-rotor will be
