HIFiRE re-entry observation using an image-based visual servoing system
Khan, Razmi, Buttsworth, David, & Upcroft, Ben (2011) HIFiRE re-entry observation using an image-based visual servoing system. In Proceedings of the 10th Australian Space Science Conference, National Space Society of Australia, University of Queensland, Brisbane, Qld, pp. 93-104.
This paper presents an image based visual servoing system that is intended to be used for tracking and obtaining scientific observations of the HIFiRE vehicles. The primary aim of this tracking platform is to acquire and track the thermal signature emitted from the surface of the vehicle during the re-entry phase of the mission using an infra-red camera. The implemented visual servoing scheme uses a classical image based approach to identify and track the target using visual kinematic control. The paper utilizes simulation and experimental results to show the tracking performance of the system using visual feedback. Discussions on current implementation and control techniques to further improve the performance of the system are also explored.
