This course aims at combining and understanding the vision,
(robotic) control and embedded computation areas. For each
discipline the student should become familiar with the main
theories, mathematical formalisms and practical issues.
The course is project driven. Students have to perform advanced lab
assignments, while studying in the mean time the required
theoretical background. This year we will all with the same goal: an
solar driven, autonomously driving car.
A basic material list will be provided, but you can extend it in
This will be quite a challenging
course, but the rewards will be high; you will learn a lot.
Only highly motivated
students will be allowed to follow this course.
Apart from studying the required material on Vision, Control and
Embedded Procesing Systems, the course will be largely based on
project work. Students will be divided into groups of 3 people
working one one or more lab assignments.
Slides as far as available will be made available during the course.
All slides have to be studied (mandatory).

further material and documentation.
This special issue has several articles on the state-of-the-art
research in the Quadcopter area. Especially study the following:
1. "Multirotor Aerial Vehicles: Modeling, Estimation, and
Control of Quadrotor"
2. "Build Your Own Quadrotor: Open-Source Projects on Unmanned
About the SURF algoritm (an scale- and rotation-invariant
algorithm for detecting Robust Features in images):

Understanding (CVIU), Vol. 110, No. 3, pp. 346--359, 2008
At the end of this course each group has to give a final
presentation and demonstration of its project results.
Guidelines for the presentation will follow.
Project details will be made available during the course.
The examination will be oral about the treated course theory, the
lab report(s), and studied articles. You have give a detailed
presentation about your project results, and give a demonstration.
Date: typical end of June, early July.
Grading depends on your report, presentation, quality of the build
vehicle, and your demonstration.
