Omnidirectional bearing-only see-and-avoid for small aerial robots
Mejias, Luis, Mondragon, Ivan, & Campoy, Pascual (2011) Omnidirectional bearing-only see-and-avoid for small aerial robots. In The 5th International Conference on Automation, Robotics and Applications, 6-8 December 2011, James Cook Hotel, Wellington, New Zealand. (In Press)
Motivated by the growing interest in unmanned aerial system’s applications in indoor and outdoor settings and the standardisation of visual sensors as vehicle payload. This work presents a collision avoidance approach based on omnidirectional cameras that does not require the estimation of range between two platforms to resolve a collision encounter. It will achieve a minimum separation between the two vehicles involved by maximising the view-angle given by the omnidirectional sensor. Only visual information is used to achieve avoidance under a bearing-only visual servoing approach. We provide theoretical problem formulation, as well as results from real flight using small quadrotors.
