• Computer vision guidance for precise movement in commercial drones

      Pollard, Alexander Ryan (University of Bedfordshire, 2017-10)
      This project aims to pave the way for completely autonomous drone flight, starting with using computer vision to guide a drone. The project will involve using computer vision to direct a drone around a room to find its goal location. The current aims and objectives are:  To implement computer control for drones and use this to run the program through the drone;  To get the drone to recognize directions given by arrows using computer vision and to translate arrows seen into lateral directions;  To accurately land the drone safely on or as close to a final goal position as possible.
