In order to localize themselves and perform autonomous tasks, robots need to perceive their environment. In this respect, cameras - and RGB-D cameras - provide a very rich information which makes them common and attractive sensors in robotics. However, using visual information to robustly estimate the position of a moving object or the 3D pose of mobile robot is still challenging, in particular in unknown or partially unknown environments, with potential noise, clutter or occlusions.

In this talk I will present some research activities conducted during my PhD and more recently as a postdoc in collaboration with the Lagadic Group of Inria Rennes.
In particular, the talk will introduce some visual tracking methods for moving object tracking and 3D model-based localization in the context of the navigation and control of small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). A more recent work on the use of dense depth maps for 3D model-based localization or positioning tasks will also be addressed.
The link between the motion of the visual sensor and the information acquired will be the key to all the presented applications.
