How to Take a 3D Selfie with an Autonomous Drone

In this video, our drone autonomously flyes over a person and takes 3D scan of it. Suddently, the person starts to move, trying to disturb the drone. However, our robust visual odometry and probabilistic dense reconstruction algorithms do not get disturbed by the motion of the subject and manage to get an accurate 3D scan of it and the surrounding scene. The visual odometry, planning, and control algorithms run fully onboard the drone, on a smartphone processor. More info at: http://rpg.ifi.uzh.ch
