'Visual SLAM Algorithms for Aerial Robots' , a project of Sergio García Gonzalo , a student of the UAH Master's Degree in Telecommunications Engineering , has received the Robotnik Award for the Best Final Master's Project in Robotics 2015-2017 awarded by the Spanish Society for Research and Development in Robotics (SEIDROB). The teacher Mª. Elena López Guillén, from the Robesafe research group of the Electronics Department of the University of Alcalá, was in charge of directing the project.



The work studies and develops various techniques that allow a small aerial robot (drone) to locate itself autonomously inside an unknown building . One of the main difficulties in locating a drone inside a building is the impossibility of using a GPS sensor to obtain its absolute position, as is usually done in outdoor environments. In addition, the absence of contact with the environment and the rapid dynamics of its movement also complicate the location compared to other types of ground robots.
