Looking for a lightweight, low-cost localization solution for a group of agents?Have a look at our recent work on ultra-wideband (UWB) time-difference-of-arrival (TDOA) positioning systems. With a neural network bias model and an efficient M-estimation based Kalman filter, our proposed localization framework is able to run on-board a 27g quadcopter!

Wondering how to improve the performance of an off-the-shelf robot when access to its controller is limited? In this IJRR paper, we propose a neural-network-based approach that learns an add-on module to enhance the performance of a black-box system using only minimal knowledge/data from the system

In our latest RA-L paper we investigated whether motion distortion and Doppler effects have an impact on radar-based navigation including odometry on the Oxford dataset and metric localization using our own platform, Boreas.
