Abstract [en]

This paper presents components of a sensor management architecture for autonomous UAV systems equipped with IR and video sensors, focusing on two main areas. Firstly, a framework inspired by optimal control and information theory is presented for concurrent path and sensor planning. Secondly, a method for visual landmark selection and recognition is presented. The latter is intended to be used within a SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) architecture for visual navigation. Results are presented on both simulated and real sensor data, the latter from the MASP system (Modular Airborne Sensor Platform), an in-house developed UAV surrogate system containing a gimballed IR camera, a video sensor, and an integrated high performance navigation system.
