Towards Flight Trials for an Autonomous UAV Emergency Landing using Machine Vision
Fitzgerald, Daniel L., Mejias, Luis, Eng, Pillar C., Liu, Xi, & Walker, Rodney A. (2007) Towards Flight Trials for an Autonomous UAV Emergency Landing using Machine Vision. In Australasian Conference on Robotics and Automation, 10-12 December, Brisbane.
This paper presents the evolution and status of a number of research programs focussed on developing an automated fixed wing UAV landing system. Results obtained in each of the three main areas of research as vision-based site identification, path and trajectory planning and multi-criteria decision making are presented. The results obtained provide a baseline for further refinements and constitute the starting point for the implementation of a prototype system ready for flight testing.
