Our research focus is the the area of 3D computer vision including vision for robotics. A specific focus is on the topic of computer vision for camera drones, e.g. for aerial image processing or camera based navigation. We operate a variety of camera drones of different sizes and also operate an indoor flying arena.
Our team got awarded an Amazon gift for continuing our drone related research.

Presentation at Ars Electronica Festival 2016
September 8-12, 2016
We presented our "Intelligent Search and Rescue Drone" in the Ars Electronica Festival 2016 - DroneLab, Linz, September 8-12, 2016. This was a great opportunity to approach the general public about civilian applications for drones and research made in the ICG (TU Graz). We used this opportunity to show our drone and the capabilities of our 3D resconstruction software, and to describe the Graz Griffins', our team, participation in the 2016 DJI Developer Challenge.
We qualified for DJI Developer Challenge Round 3!
August 9, 2016
Our team, the Graz Griffins is one of 10 teams which qualified for the 3rd round of the DJI Developer Challenge2016 (Team Listings)! Hence, we are allowed to participate in the final competition end of August at the Griffiss International Airport, Rome, New York, USA. [more]
CVPR Code Released!
May 19, 2016
We released our code of our CVPR paper, with which you can automatically generate training data for confidence learning in stereo vision. You can find it in the "Software" section.
We are happy to announce that our journal paper got accepted at Computer Vision and Image Understanding (CVIU). More details can be found in the Publications section.
DJI Developer Challenge 2016!
Mar 29, 2016
Our team, the Graz Griffins, has qualified to participate in the 2016 DJI Developer Challenge (see Challengers >> 1st round), among only 25 teams worldwide. The team consists of members from the IRT and the ICG, both institutes at the TU Graz. We will now receive our Developer Package, which includes the DJI Matrice M100 quadcopter equipped with the impressive DJI Guidance multipurpose sensing system, a Gimbal Zenmuse X3 camera and a DJI Manifold onboard computer!
