It is oriented to used vision-based control strategies to the object following problem,  combining the image processing and control techniques in such a way that the visual information is used within the control loop. The proposed techniques will consider  the use of the UAV as the object to control, or/with the onboard pan and tilt camera  platform. The Inspection and Recognition techniques are used for the object detection.




By combining different computer vision techniques, such as motion estimation and image alignment, applied to information extracted by cameras, we manage to track objects in the scene, overcoming the constraints of real-time operations. We test the performances of these approaches in Unmanned Vehicles (aerial/ground). Drogue tracking for aerial refuelling (collaboration with Bristol Univ.)
