P2.02s Autonomous navigation of satellites for space exploration

Advanced Satellite Systems, Sensors & Intelligence

Anne Bettens, University of Sydney

This project looks at designing an intelligent satellite system, encompassing sensors, autonomous vision-based navigation and deep learning. The largest area for potential impact within autonomous space exploration is the successful implementation of the completely autonomous vision-based navigation system demonstration on a robotic craft, in real time. This can be simulated in a Virtual reality environment with an architecture that has previously been developed.
