Abstract
Abstract: Fully autonomous landing on moving platforms poses a problem of importance for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Current approaches are usually based on tracking and following the moving platform by means of several techniques, which frequently lack performance in real applications. The aim of this paper is to prove a simple landing strategy is able to provide practical results. The presented approach is based on three stages: estimation, prediction and fast landing. As a preliminary phase, the problem is solved for a particular case of the IMAV 2016 competition. Subsequently, it is extended to a more generic and versatile approach. A thorough evaluation has been conducted with simulated and real flight experiments. Simulations have been performed utilizing Gazebo 6 and PX4 Software-In-The-Loop (SITL) and real flight experiments have been conducted with a custom quadrotor and a moving platform in an indoor environment.
