Navigation of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Using Image Processing
Linköping University, Department of Computer and Information Science.
2008 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the possibility of using aerial or satellite images or

eventually digital elevation models in order to localize the UAV helicopter in the

environment. Matching techniques are investigated in order to match the available on-board

image of the area with the live images acquired by the on-board video camera.

The problem is interesting because it can provide a redundancy for the UAV navigation

system which is based only on GPS.

The thesis is in the context of the development of an integrated system for navigation using

image sequences from an aircraft. The system is composed of relative position estimation,

which computes the current position of the helicopter by accumulating relative displacement

extracted from successive aerial images. These successive aerial images are then matched

using certain image matching techniques.
