David Valiente defends his PhD Thesis “View-based SLAM in the 2-1/2D space with omnidirectional images and feature point information”


The PhD student David Valiente defended his doctoral thesis entitled “View-based SLAM in the 2-1 / 2D omnidirectional images With space and feature point information”, on¬†October 3th, 2016.

The main contribution achieved in this thesis has been a new visual map approach consisting of a reduced set of omnidirectional images within the problem of SLAM in mobile robotics, with application in navigation and exploration tasks.

This thesis has been developed under the supervision of Dr. Oscar Reinoso and Dr. Arturo Gil. and it has been presented in the form of International Doctorate, since David Valiente stayed at the University of Technology of Sydney (Australia), as part of his Doctoral studies.

Dr. Carlos R. Fern√°ndez- Pousa, professor of TECNIT, together with researchers from the Polytechnical University of Valencia, University of Valencia and the Italian National Research Council, has developed a new optoelectronic device that generates quantum light emission and it is compatible with optical fiber communications technology.

The work has been published in the prestigious journal Scientific Reports, and it is presents an alternative for the development of quantum information technologies. Integrated devices have been fabricated in fiber that filter the light emitted by quantum dots (QDs), with an efficiency more than 10 times greater than the typical. This increase in the efficiency enabled to work with simpler and less expensive near infrared detectors.
