During the week of robotics organized by the ARCOS-LAB, Dr. Geovanni Martinez, IPCV-LAB coordinator, had the opportunity to give the following three talks: 1) Intensity-Difference Based Monocular Visual Odometry for Planetary Rovers (on January 25th, from 2 pm to 3 pm), 2) Vision-Based Teleoperation of Robotic Arms (on January 25th, from 3 pm to 4 pm) and 3) Vision-Based Autonomous Navigation for Planetary Rovers (on January 26th, from 1 pm to 2 pm). This later talk included a demonstration of the autonomous capabilities of the Seekur Jr. rover, which was recently acquired for testing the vison-based autonomous navigation systems, which are being developed at the IPCV-LAB.
