Height estimation for an autonomous helicopter
Corke, Peter, Sikka, Pavan, & Roberts, Jonathan M. (2000) Height estimation for an autonomous helicopter. Lecture Notes in Control and Information Sciences: Experimental Robotics VII, 271, pp. 101-110.
Height is a critical variable for helicopter hover control. In this paper we discuss, and present experimental results for, two different height sensing techniques: ultrasonic and stereo imaging, which have complementary characteristics. Feature-based stereo is used which provides a basis for visual odometry and attitude estimation in the future.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
