I am working on an exciting robotics project with Michael Milford and Matthew Dunbabin–extreme geniuses! Please check out this recent paper led by Michael
Milford, Michael, Firn, Jennifer, Beattie, James, Jacobson, Adam, Pepperell, Edward, Mason, Eugene, Kimlin, Michael, & Dunbabin, Matthew, “Automated sensory data alignment for environmental and epidermal change monitoring“, in Australasian Conference on Robotics and Automation, Melbourne, Australia, 2014.
This new alignment algorithm created by Michael can increase the speed and accuracy of monitoring and surveys in ecology and other fields.

We are working on the algorithms now to extract data from these “place recognition” images.
