Prof. Dr. Johanna Wanke, German Federal Minister of Education and Research visited the University of Costa Rica. During her visit, Dr. Geovanni Martinez, IPCV-LAB coordinator,  had the opportunity to explain the latest results obtained through research projects in the area of vision-based navigation systems for autonomous planetary robots, specifically the results obtained by testing the intensity-difference based monocular visual odometry algorithm in a real robot platform in outdoor sunlit conditions. This later algorithm was recently debeloped at the IPCV-LAB for robot positioning using a single video camera.
