Professor Shaojie SHEN offered a tutorial lecture with regard to Sensor fusion for State Estimation, for 2016 ICRA IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation which hold at Stockholm, Sweden. This tutorial provides an introduction to the theory and practice of aerial robots, with a mix of fundamentals and application. It will expose participants to the state of the art in robot design, mechanics, control, estimation, perception and planning. The tutorial aimed to answer the question of “What sensors besides cameras are required for state estimation”, “How do we fuse information from different cameras and ensure redundancy ”And “how do we calibrate different systems”.
