PIXHAWK MAV Computer Vision

Our project creates a computer-vision platform for micro air vehicles. We are trying to process the camera images in realtime on the helicopter. We will participate with a student team in the upcoming MAV competitions.

The focus of this project is to use computer vision on micro air vehicles (MAVs) in order to enable autonomous action. Our goal is to do all image processing onboard, leading to full autonomy. The computer vision draws from base technology such as the mechanical platform or the attitude estimation of the IMU. At the same time, it provides data to more complex tasks such as obstacle avoidance or simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM).
