Lin Feng received the B.Eng. degree in Computer Science and Control, and the M.Eng. degree in system engineering from the Beihang University, Beijing, China, in 2000 and 2003, respectively. He received the Ph.D. degree in Computer & Electrical Engineering from the National University of Singapore in 2011. Dr. Lin is currently working as a Senior Research Scientist at the Temasek Laboratories @ NUS, and a Research Assistant Professor of Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at the National University of Singapore. His main research interests are unmanned aerial vehicles, vision-aided control and navigation, target tracking, robot vision as well as embedded vision systems. He has served on the editorial board for Unmanned Systems. He was the recipient of the Best Application Paper Award, 8th World Congress on Intelligent Control and Automation, Jinan, China (2010).
Unmanned systems, especially unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), have shown great potentials in both military and civil applications in complex and demanding missions. Recently, much research and development has been done for UAVs to operating in complex and unknown environments, especially GPS-denied environments. In this presentation, we will present the in-depth research in the advanced autonomous systems on UAVs that are combined with sensors and electronics specially developed to automate flight process in GPS-denied environments, such as below the forest canopy or indoor environments. The sensors and algorithms plan the drones’ flight paths, make sense of where they are, and enable the drones to fly according to the desired flight paths while ensuring that they do not collide with obstacles. All these are done automatically with no human intervention. Several related applications of the autonomous systems on UAVs will be presented too.
