New theory allows drones to see distances with one eye

A new theory has been published that allows drones to see distances with a single camera. TU Delft’s Micro Air Vehicle Laboratory has found that drones approaching an object with an insect-inspired vision strategy become unstable at a specific distance from the object. Turning this weakness into a strength, drones can actually use the timely […]

Intelligent Vision-based Landing System of UAVs

Background The capability of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) to perform landing task is essential for the autonomous operation, especially when they are outside line-of-sight. For autonomous landing, these vehicles need to know by themselves which areas are safe to be landed upon. Therefore, an intelligent landing system of UAVs using a monocular vision is proposed due to the fact that visual sensors […]
