The paper on ocelli-based sensorimotor control on which I collaborated with the Harvard folks has now been published. Here’s the video we edited. This is some nice press coverage from The Scientist.

- Colleagues roboticists: Next year ICRA 2015 will have a “trailer” like other conferences such as SIGGRAPH. Submit a clip to showcase your work!
- MIT students: There is funding available for MIT PhD/MS students who want to work with me. (Note: except extraordinary circumstances, we do not bring in visiting students due to bureaucratic complications and fees)
- Cambridge/Boston colleagues: Come to the Meetings on Joint Inference and Control. (Or attend remotely by Webex.)

With a fashionable delay of a few months after IROS, I refreshed the code and made reasonable installation docs for our event-based quadrotor localization method. Thanks to Sean Aubin (U.Waterloo) for politely pushing me to do it.

I’ll be at NIPS—I will give a talk in the Advances in Machine Learning for Sensorimotor Control workshop (Monday) and a poster in the Machine Learning in Computational Biology workshop (Tuesday).
2013-11-22 “Eigen” branch of CSM
A belated announcement about the C(anonical) Scan Matcher:
the Github repository now contains a new branch called
This branch uses the Eigen library rather than GSL. This branch is the work of people working at U. Freiburg and Kuka. The main contributors are Christoph Sprunk and Rainer Kuemmerle.
