Space CREI is launching its weekly seminar series. The default time and location for the Space Center Seminars will be Thursdays at 16:00 in Room 450, TPOC-3. Deviations from the default will be prominently noted.
Please find the schedule for the upcoming events below:
Speaker: Professor Lev Rapoport
21 November 11:00 – 13:00
GNSS Navigation in Precise Agriculture and Road Construction
Control theory and GNSS navigation are now widely used in precise agriculture and road construction. Wheeled robots governed by GNSS and inertial sensors do most part of work in agriculture fields. I will talk about the problems of control theory and applied mathematics that arise in the control of agricultural robots. Planning of trajectories, synthesis of a control laws, estimation of attraction domains, precise GNSS navigation will be described as well as mathematical methods involved in solution of these problems.
Speaker: Leonid Zotov, Sternberg Astronomical Institute
22 November 16:00 – 18:00
Iterative Closest Point with Anderson Acceleration
Iterative Closest Point (ICP) is a classical algorithm extensively used in robotics and image processing. It is a fundamental part of many Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) setups. In this talk in addition to covering classical ICP variants, a novel modification will be presented, which utilizes modified Anderson Acceleration to improve algorithm convergence rate.
Speaker: Artyom Pavlov, Skoltech PhD student
