A significant amount of research in the field of stereo vision has been published in the past decade. Considerable progress has been made in improving accuracy of results as well as achieving real-time performance in obtaining those results. This work provides a comprehensive review of stereo vision algorithms with specific emphasis on real-time performance(More)
This paper describes an on-board vision sensor system that is developed specifically for small unmanned vehicle applications. For small vehicles, vision sensors have many advantages, including size, weight, and power consumption, over other sensors such as radar, sonar, and laser range finder, etc. A vision sensor is also uniquely suited for tasks such as(More)
In this paper an embedded vision system and control module is introduced that is capable of controlling an unmanned four-rotor helicopter and processing live video for various law enforcement, security, military, and civilian applications. The vision system is implemented on a newly designed compact FPGA board (Helios). The Helios board contains a Xilinx(More)
