A Visual System for Autonomous Air-to-Air Refuelling Tasks

A hierarchical visual tracking algorithm is proposed and developed for the purposes of tracking a drogue during the capture stage of autonomous aerial refuelling, and of estimating its 3D position.

A System for the Design and Development of Vision-based Multi-robot Quadrotor Swarms

We present a cost-effective framework for the prototyping of vision-based quadrotor multi-robot systems, which core characteristics are: modularity, compatibility with different platforms and being flight-proven. The framework is fully operative and was demonstrated with the participation in the 2013 International Micro Air Vehicle Indoor Flight Competition (Toulouse, France) where it was awarded with the First Prize in the Indoors Autonomy Challenge.
