The aim of this proposal is to exploit the growing interest and convenience of use of small scale UAV on daily inspection process, by developing a series of self enclosed specialized and complementary modules and applications suitable for a large variety of commercial small scale UAV currently on the market. Each one of these modules and applications, will be focused on exploiting the information given by visual sensors and conventional cameras in order to automate different process involved in the operation of the UAV, in which are included: mosaic map construction, visual navigation based on maps, video stabilization, image tracking and servoing, 3D pose estimation base on vision, and autonomous landing among others. Different and complementary modules will be developed in order to be able to add additional autonomous capabilities to a variety of UAVs. These modules, self-enclosed, will be integrated on different and independent control and communications architectures, allowing them to build a modular application system for UAV. This modular scheme will allow a generic UAV to be easily adjusted for different kind of mission and inspections operations, making a considerably reduction on the equipment and system cost and allowing a reduced cost on the UAV based inspection process.
