Motion planning of unmanned aerial vehicles with visual-aided simultaneous
localization and mapping (V-SLAM): This project aims to realize motion
planning of unmanned aerial vehicles in priori unknown environments by
vision-based sensing. In this project, V-SLAM algorithms will be developed,
and tested during fast flights with a multi-rotor equipped with a camera,
lidar, and inertial sensors. V-SLAM will provide an instantaneous local map
of surroundings in which local motion planning of multi-rotor will be

-	Solid background in computer vision, simultaneous localization and mapping
-	Solid background in Python, C/C++ programming
-	Solid background in ROS-Gazebo
-	Experience with real world robots, sensors
-	Excellent English skills (writing and speaking)

[Additional Desired Features]
-	Basic knowledge/experience in motion planning research
-	Basic knowledge/experience in unmanned aerial vehicle research 
-	Publication in relevant conferences (e.g., ICRA, IROS, RSS, CVPR) or
journals (e.g., IJRR, TRO, AR)
-	Available for overseas travel for collaboration
