An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) or drone is an aircraft with no pilot on board, which has the ability to operate in remote, dangerous and dull situations. Many types of drones are designed for different purposes based on size, payload capacity, altitude and operation time.
Generally the drones can be classified as follows:
Micro UAVs – small size and extremely portable units
Low altitude and long distance UAVs
High altitude and long distance UAVs
Autonomous UAV Project
The main objective of this project is to implement different algorithms on small UAVs, in order to operate autonomously in indoor and outdoor scenarios.
The actual lines of the project can be divided as:
Computer Vision Different computer vision algorithms are used for autonomous navigation, obstacle detection, object tracking and autonomous take-off and landing
Control System Implementing different systems such as PID and Fuzzy Logic to control the drone manually or autonomously
