Both quadcopter Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs) and Flapping Wing MAVs (FWMAVs) are constrained in Size, Weight and Processing power (SWaP) in order to achieve flight tasks that include attitude and velocity stabilisation, as well as obstacle avoidance.
Conventional sensory and control approaches, such as those relying on inertial, visual and...

The combination of Spiking Neural Networks and event-based vision sensors holds the potential of highly efficient and high-bandwidth optical flow estimation. This thesis presents, to the best of the author’s knowledge, the first hierarchical spiking architecture in which motion (direction and speed) selectivity emerges in a biologically...

Robotics has evolved since its inception and has found major applications in industries. With recent de- mand for medical and social robots, they are required to be flexible, compliant and adaptable. Today’s robots are far from performing smooth, fine co-ordinated movements that are required to be used in the fields mentioned above. Primates...

Summary: The need for vision guided mobile robotics is becoming more apparent, however it is proven to be troublesome to stabilize its vision. For two legged robots, it is, during motion, even more difficult than for wheeled robots to be able to perceive the world around it. Finding a stabilization method which is able to reduce the motion blur...

Bio-inspired flying micro drones, formally known as Flapping Wing Micro Aerial Vehicles (FWMAV) are a booming class of robots in today's world. Navigation and flight control of these drones is an interesting area of research that has become popular among roboticists and engineers due to its challenges. A bio-inspired optic flow based flight...

With the development of the technology, today's digital systems' growing design complexity has outpaced the traditional RTL design flow. The manual steps of micro-architecture definition, hand written RTL, simulation, debug and area/speed optimization through RTL synthesis are becoming more and more time consuming that gives the call of higher...

Orbital fat is the soft tissue inside the eye socket, or orbit, that surrounds the eye muscles, eyeball, optic nerve and blood vessels. It plays an important role in the mechanical operation of the eye during eyeball rotation. Knowledge of how this orbital fat behaves is limited. It is important for surgeons to improve this knowledge to make...

Optical flow algorithms present a way for computers to estimate motion from the real world. Applications like cloud motion, surveillance and robot eyesight are examples of this. The focus of existing research is mainly on either fast, but poor solutions, or slow but good solutions. In this thesis an approach to improve performance through...

Verveld, M.J. (author)
This work addresses the problem of indoor state estimation for autonomous flying vehicles with an optic flow approach. The paper discusses a sensor configuration using six optic flow sensors of the computer mouse type augmented by a three-axis accelerometer to estimate velocity, rotation, attitude and viewing distances. It is shown that the...
