As previously announced the latest GameDuell TechTalk Explore featured Jakob Engel who is doing research about methods for the visual navigation of unmanned air vehicles at the Computer Vision chair of the Technical University Munich.

Over 100 participants witnessed how the speaker introduced a method that allows a quadrocopter to navigate autonomously in small indoor environments, which is available as open-source software package in ROS (robot operating system).

 

For all that weren't able to participate, here are the first pictures from the event as well as the video.
