Abstract

En los anos recientes los vehiculos aereos autonomos han despertado un gran interes en la sociedad en todos los ambitos. Sus caracteristicas y capacidades para realizar determinadas tareas evitando la intervencion del humano, que en muchos casos resulta ser riesgosa, lo situan como una plataforma ideal para tareas de inspeccion y vigilancia. El uso de sensores visuales en robots aereos para realizar tareas como evasion de obstaculos, seguimiento de objetivos o deteccion de caracteristicas salientes, permite a tales robots servir de visores inteligentes para aplicaciones de inspeccion, patrullaje y monitoreo, reconstruccion digital aerea, etc. Mas aun, el uso de la vision por computador puede reducir la incertidumbre e incrementar la versatilidad y desempeno general cuando se realizan tareas robotizadas. Este trabajo presenta una estructura de control disenada para ser integrada en un entorno visual donde multiples agentes pueden actuar simultaneamente. Procesos de diferente índole, p.e, vision, estacion de control, joystick, etc, pueden influir en el control de vuelo y la vez comunicarse e influir en otros procesos. El trabajo hace referencia a diferentes pruebas experimentales donde se ha validado el esquema presentado.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
