Offre de thèse : Université Aix-Marseille

Contrôle d’altitude chez le bourdon : les invariants optiques Naviguer dans un environnement inconnu est une tâche aujourd’hui impossible à réaliser par un micro aéronef de quelques grammes, mais qui est réalisée tous les jours avec aisance par les insectes volants. Il existe donc des principes performants, basés en particulier sur des traitements adéquats de l’information […]
