The projections of world parallel lines in an image intersect at a single point called the vanishing point (VP). VPs are a key ingredient for various vision tasks including rotation estimation and 3D reconstruction. Urban environments generally exhibit some dominant orthogonal VPs. Given a set of lines extracted from a calibrated image, this paper aims to(More)
Rotation estimation is a fundamental step for various robotic applications such as automatic control of ground/aerial vehicles, motion estimation and 3D reconstruction. However it is now well established that traditional navigation equipments, such as global positioning systems (GPSs) or inertial measurement units (IMUs), suffer from several disadvantages.(More)
— Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) are the subject of an increasing interest in many applications and a key requirement for autonomous navigation is the attitude/position stabilization of the vehicle. Some previous works have suggested using catadioptric vision, instead of traditional perspective cameras, in order to gather much more information from the(More)
— Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are the subject of an increasing interest in many applications. Autonomy is one of the major advantages of these vehicles. It is then necessary to develop particular sensors in order to provide efficient navigation functions. In this paper, we propose a method for attitude computation catadioptric images. We first(More)
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are increasingly replacing manned systems in situations that are dangerous, remote, or difficult for manned aircraft to access. Its control tasks are empowered by computer vision technology. Visual sensors are robustly used for stabilization as primary or at least secondary sensors. Hence, UAV stabilization by attitude(More)
— Attitude is one of the most important parameters for a UAV during a flight. Attitude computation methods based vision generally use the horizon line as reference. However, the horizon line becomes an inadequate feature in urban environment. We then propose in this paper an omnidirectional vision system based on straight lines (very frequent in urban(More)
