In this talk, I will walk through a pipeline of single target tracking system. This system was developed to enabling a consumer-grade, quad-ropter to autonomously follow a selected target. My talk will mostly cover three computer vision algorithms for 1) tapping to choose an object, 2) single-target tracking algorithm, and 3) visual servoing.

Speaker Bio

Dr. YoungWoo Seo is the Senior Director of Autonomous Systems Dev at the Hyperloop One. Hyperloop One Autonomous Systems Dev team is building a fully-autonomous system with advanced robotics technologies into hyper-structures, pods, and portals that will enable on-demand, direct transportation with no-stops, real-time scheduling, traffic and load predictions, interoperability with last-mile providers, unparalleled passenger safety and comfort, and predictive operations and maintenance. Prior to joining Hyperloop One, YoungWoo led the development of autonomous flight stack for Autel Robotics's next-generation drone, led a team of engineers to deliver a part of the next-generation products at the special project group of Apple, and was a technical consultant for Cruise Automation (acquired by GM). YoungWoo has an exemplary research background and has co-authored a multitude of research papers on the subjects of autonomous driving, perception, computer vision, and field-robotics. He holds a Doctor of Philosophy and a Masters of Science in Robotics from Carnegie Mellon University, a Masters of Computer Science from Seoul National University, and a Bachelors of Computer Science from Konkuk University in Seoul, Korea.
