Descripción
UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) are becoming more popular for civil tasks due to their unique flight capabilities. Unmanned Aerial Systems have been an active area of research in recent years. The use of aerial vehicles in civilian applications for surveillance and inspection continues to grow due in part to the emergence of cheap low power vision systems. Vision for flight control encompasses a broad range of research areas such as object detection and tracking, position estimation, sensor fusion with inertial navigation and GPS, and multivariable non-linear system modeling and control. We believe that computer vision is much more than a technique to sense and recover information from the environment. It should play a main role in the UAVs functionality. providing small and medium size UAVs as cheap way of executing these inspection functions, potentially revolutionizing the economics of this industry. Our ultimate goal is to provide rotary-wing UAVs with the technology necessary to be visually guided by the visual information processed. In this context, visual servoing techniques are applied to the control the position of an UAV using the location of features in the image plane
