Current Projects

3D Mouse 3D Mouse - A device which allows the user to manipulate virtual 3D Objects in all six degrees of freedom fast and intuitively.
SICK Robot Day SICK Robot Day - We regulary participate at the international robot competition organized by the SICK AG in Germany.
Autonomous Flying Robots Tracking Vehicles with Autonomous Flying Robots - A method for self-localization and controlling the pose of MAVs. Our onboard solutions deal with limited payload capacity and little processing power but allow visual indoor and outdoor flights and carrier tracking.
