Vision-Aided Inertial Navigation for Flight Control
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-09)
Many onboard navigation systems use the Global Positioning System to bound the errors that result from integrating inertial sensors over time. Global Positioning System information, however, is not always accessible since ...
Estimation and Guidance Strategies for Vision-based Target Tracking
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-06)
This paper discusses estimation and guidance strategies for vision-based target tracking. Specific applications include formation control of multiple unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and air-to-air refueling. We assume that ...
Visual Search Automation for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-01)
This paper describes the design, development, and testing of an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) with automated capabilities: searching a prescribed area, identifying a specific building within that area based on a small ...
Adaptive Trajectory Control for Autonomous Helicopters
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005)
For autonomous helicopter flight, it is common to separate the flight control problem into an inner loop that controls attitude and an outer loop that controls the translational trajectory of the helicopter. In previous ...
