A new software product from Skilligent - Skilligent Visual Localization System - enables mobile robots and unmanned vehicles to visually localize by recognizing and tracking visual landmarks.

The new software is based on a significantly improved version of Skilligent Robot Vision System. The new version makes heavy use of a homography algorithm which enables 3D localization.

Here is a video of a launch of a robotic aicraft controlled by Skilligent software. A small PC/104 single-board x86 computer is installed inside the body of the aircraft. The flight control software is written using Skilligent Control System Framework software as a realtime programming framework.

Here is a video of a landing.

Skilligent software is successfully used for controlling a robotic aircraft. Our Thai partners are designing an innovative UAV autopilot. They use our software product as a programming framework for both onboard flight computer and for a ground control station which is basically a laptop with a joystick console and a radio modem.

It turned out that these days one can build a full-blown UAV autopilot by connecting together a bunch of off-the- shelf components. Very little soldering and no custom PCB design is required.

Here is a press release talking about the RPV flight control system that was created during the project. Here is a video of the RPV landing. More videos to follow as the system takes off several times a day to collect data needed for autopilot design.

Skilligent has released a demo software package which demonstrates the object recognition capabilities of Skilligent Computer Vision System.

Users Guide, Skilligent Computer Vision Demo [PDF]

The article "Robot Learning Technology for Multi-Task Service Robots" [PDF] discusses the benefits which the robot learning technology brings to the field of multi-task service robotics.

The Skilligent Computer Vision product brochure [PDF] describes the capabilities of the computer vision system, a part of the Skilligent Robot Learning and Behavior Control System. The computer vision software can be also used as an independent software component.
