UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) are becoming more popular for civil task due to their unique flight capabilities. The video shows several capabilities of a platform used as main research testbed of computer vision for unmanned aerial vehicles. Four major research areas are explored in the present work as visual servoing, trajectory planning, power line inspection and stereo-based visual navigation.
